Washington — The Senate voted to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court on Thursday, making her the first Black woman to serve as a justice on the nation's highest court.

The final vote was 53-47, with three Republicans — Susan Collins of Maine, Mitt Romney of Utah and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — joining all 50 Democrats in backing her nomination. The White House and Democratic leaders had urged GOP senators to back Jackson's nomination in the hopes of confirming her with bipartisan support.

Vice President Kamala Harris, the first woman and first woman of color to hold the role, presided over the Senate during the vote. Democrats burst into applause once Harris read the vote count and made Jackson's confirmation official.

Jackson will not take the bench immediately, since Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, who is she replacing, plans to serve out the rest of the court's current term, which ends this summer.

Here is how each senator voted on Jackson's confirmation:
