More than 20 House members missed the first series of votes on Friday, raising questions about how many people will vote on the GOP's new border bill.

The number of present members will be crucial as GOP leadership continues to whip members behind the border supplemental appropriations package and a separate bill to limit the Deferred Action on Child Arrivals (DACA) program. Votes are expected on the bills later Friday.

If 21 members are missing from votes later on Friday, it could narrow down the needed majority to pass the border bills. In that case, only 207 aye votes would be needed to pass each bill.

There are currently two vacancies. If all 433 House members were to vote, legislation needs 217 votes to pass.

Reps. Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.) and Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.) are both ill and have missed votes all week. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii) has also been away throughout the week, as she is campaigning ahead of her primary election later this month.

Thirteen Democrats and seven Republicans missed both votes. 

The first vote was on a procedural move known as ordering the previous question. The second was on adoption of a rule to grant same-day authority, which allows the House to consider a rule the same day it is approved by the House Rules Committee. Normally, the House must wait at least one day before voting on a rule, which sets parameters for floor debate. Adoption of the same-day rule essentially speeds up consideration of the legislation regarding the border crisis.

Cantor also announced late Thursday that he will resign his seat on Aug. 18 so that his successor can serve in the lame-duck session. A spokeswoman did not say if he would return for potential votes later Friday.
