Update: House Speaker Vote Heads To Sixth Vote

After the fourth and fifth votes remain with the same 201 votes for McCarthy, 20 for Donalds, 1 Present vote, and 212 for Democrat Jeffries. The House is set to go into the sixth vote.

As of now, and until a Speaker is selected, House members cannot be sworn in and will continue to use the Representative-elect title. The Clerk of the House, who is currently presiding over the vote, will continue to head the House until a Speaker is selected.

The voting will continue until a majority is gained for one candidate. This could take days or even weeks depending on how the member-elects vote. Though this will for sure remain close as the votes continue to come in.
