Is Your Member of Congress in the Top 25 for Missing Votes?

Two top-tier Republican presidential candidates are at or near the top of the top 25 list for members missing votes in Congress.

Though Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tops the list and has faced heavy criticism from opponents for missing votes while campaigning for president, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is not far behind at fourth place. Former candidate South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who dropped out of the race Dec. 21, came in second place.

The list, compiled by by Inside Government, also found that six of the members represent either California, Oregon or Washington, which are furthest from the Capitol. The list also includes Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) at ninth place, who spent the better part of 2015 running for governor of his state.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) rounds out the top 10 for missing votes, while Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) ranks 22nd.
