The Senate confirmed voting rights attorney Myrna Pérez to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Monday, making her the second-ever Hispanic woman to sit on the Manhattan-based federal appeals court.

The Senate confirmed her by a vote of 48-43. Pérez, former director of the Brennan Center of Justice’s Voting Rights and Elections Program, is the seventh federal appellate nominee confirmed since President Joe Biden took office and replaces Judge Denny Chin, who took senior status in June.
