From Jan 2009 to Nov 2013, Warner missed 49 of 1,420 roll call votes, which is 3.5%. This is worse than the median of 1.8% among the lifetime records of senators currently serving. The chart below reports missed votes over time.
That’s right, Virginia’s senior U.S. Senator is twice as likely to miss a vote than his colleagues. We need a senator who actually shows up to do what we pay him to do and then cast those votes after thoughtful consideration, not simply checking with his party leaders on how to vote.
