Protesters gathered outside the US Supreme Court ahead of the Senate vote on Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination on October 26.
Barrett’s nomination, following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, sparked controversy due to the proximity of the presidential election on November 3. The vote, scheduled for around 7.30pm, came a day after Democrats unsuccessfully tried to filibuster the nomination.
