From Jan 1892 to Mar 1897, Peffer missed 56 of 967 roll call votes, which is 5.8%. This is better than the median of 35.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1897. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses, major life events, and running for higher office.
