LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Senate recorded 642 roll call votes in 2015, and Sen. Dale Zorn made sure to cast a vote on every single one of them.
“The people of Monroe and Lenawee counties sent me to Lansing to be their voice in the state Senate,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “At the foundation of that duty is being at work each day and casting my vote on legislation. I take personally the responsibility entrusted in me and am proud to have never missed a single vote — in 2015.”
According to MichiganVotes.org, Michigan’s 38 senators and 110 representatives missed a combined 1,055 recorded roll call votes in 2015. The number of missed votes is down from 1,093 in 2014 and has been greatly reduced since 2001-2002, when the site began tracking the information and the legislators missed a total of 21,162 votes.
Zorn said that he also had perfect voting records all four years of his service in the House of Representatives from 2011 through 2014.
In total, Zorn has not missed a single vote of more than 3,500 roll call votes during his five years in the Legislature.
“It is an honor and a privilege to serve on behalf of the hardworking men and women of Michigan’s 17th Senate District,” Zorn said. “As they go to work each day, I believe they deserve the same dedication from their elected officials.”
Zorn was one of 14 senators and 65 representatives who missed no votes in 2015. The full Missed Votes Report is available at www.MichiganVotes.org/MissedVotes.aspx.
