6 lawmakers who've never missed a vote

Six members of Congress have never missed a vote in their careers on Capitol Hill.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) has cast more than 5,500 consecutive votes since she was sworn into office in 1997. Reps. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Steve Womack (R-Ark.), who were elected in 2010, have also not missed a vote. The others are Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) and Reps. Derek Kilmer (D-Wash.) and David Jolly (R-Fla.).

This Congress, 12 other members have logged perfect attendance records, including Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

Rep. Leonard Lance (R-N.J.), who is among the dozen, noted that his state is relatively close to Washington, D.C. But he takes pride in making every roll call, saying when an appointment or meeting conflicts with a vote, “I excuse myself form the office to make sure I am on the floor at the appropriate time.”

For this article, The Hill reviewed roll call data on Congress.gov as well as govtrack.us.
