From Dec 1899 to Mar 1917, Williams missed 149 of 587 roll call votes, which is 25.4%. This is on par with the median of 24.9% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1917. 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.
