Live Vote Count: Tracking the House Speaker Votes


On Friday, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California made progress in winning over some of the ultraconservative Republicans who have so far opposed his bid for House speaker.

Jan. 6, 3:39 p.m. — After a 13th vote failed to produce a speaker, the House adjourned until 10 p.m. Representative Kevin McCarthy of California needs to flip two of his remaining six detractors to be elected (as long as all 434 members cast a ballot).

Note: To win, a member must receive the majority of votes cast for a person, not counting “present” votes. The Constitution specifies that House members choose the speaker, but the speaker does not have to be a current or even a former representative.

Mr. McCarthy needs 218 votes if every member of Congress casts a ballot, so he only can afford to lose four Republican votes. By the 13th round of voting, held on Friday, 15 of the 21 Republicans who had previously opposed Mr. McCarthy (or simply voted “present”) had flipped their votes.

Note: See a breakdown of individual member votes below.

All 212 Democrats voted for Representative Hakeem Jeffries of New York, the minority leader, and two Republicans who have supported Mr. McCarthy in previous ballots were absent. If they were to return and every other member continues to vote, Mr. McCarthy would need to convince two of the remaining six detractors to vote for him in order to become speaker.

Note: To win, a member must receive the majority of votes cast for a person, not counting “present” votes which are not included in this table.

In the first vote, held on Tuesday, 19 House Republicans voted for a Republican other than Mr. McCarthy. During the second vote, those same 19 opposed him but rallied around Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, a founding member of the ultraconservative House Freedom Caucus. Mr. Jordan pleaded with his colleagues to give their support to Mr. McCarthy, but all 19, plus an additional Republican, voted for Mr. Jordan on the third ballot.

In the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds of voting, held on Wednesday, the same 20 Republicans voted for Representative Byron Donalds of Florida, and one voted “present.” In the seventh through 11th rounds, held on Thursday, 20 Republicans continued to withhold support from Mr. McMarthy, and one voted “present.” Mr. McCarthy lost an additional Republican vote in the ninth through 11th rounds when Representative Ken Buck of Colorado did not vote.
