Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1969 to Dec 1973, Saxbe missed 710 of 2,215 roll call votes, which is 32.1%. This is much worse than the median of 13.4% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Dec 1973. 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.
