The Senate passed legislation Tuesday to mandate federal recognition for same-sex marriages. The 61-36 vote marked a moment of bipartisanship before Republicans assume control of the House of Representatives in January.

Twelve Republicans joined 47 Democrats and two independents in voting for the measure. The 36 votes against the bill all came from Republican senators. Three senators did not vote: Ben Sasse, R-Neb., and Patrick J. Toomey, R-Pa. - both of whom are retiring - and Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., who is campaigning for reelection before a Dec. 6 runoff.

A vote in the House is expected as soon as next week. President Joe Biden has said he looks forward to signing it. Here is how the senators voted.
