With just one week before the election on 3 November, adding Judge Barrett to the court will make it the most conservative it has been since the 1930s.

A vote is expected sometime after 6.30pm ET — 30 hours after the upper chamber of Congress voted to limit debate on the nomination.

An outdoor swearing-in ceremony is planned at the White House at 9pm.
