PORTLAND, Maine — Sen. Susan Collins has completed another year without missing a vote.

The Maine Republican extended her perfect voting record with a consecutive voting streak that extended to 4,825 roll call votes in 2011.

Collins said she takes her responsibilities seriously, and that includes voting.

Collins has said she looked up to Sen. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine, who held the record in the Senate until 1981 with 2,941 consecutive roll call votes.
