The United States Capitol.

WASHINGTON - The six Native Americans serving in the 117th Congress cast their votes down party lines on Wednesday to certify the Electoral College tallies presented from all 50 states.

During the course of the 15-hour process that included a recess because of the pro-Trump mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol, members of Congress voted on two objections to throw out Electoral College votes from Arizona and Pennsylvania.

In the end, the yea votes for the objections were rejected by the House of Representatives.
