Note: Four House seats are vacant, and three additional members are not expected to vote, which would make 215 the threshold to pass each article.

The House of Representatives approved two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump on Wednesday evening, charging Mr. Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The Times tracked the vote live, showing how every representative voted.

With the outcome largely predetermined, Mr. Trump has become the third president in the nation’s history to be impeached. Presidents Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were both impeached by the House but later acquitted by the Senate. President Richard M. Nixon resigned before the full House could vote to impeach him.

Leading up to the vote, The Times conducted a survey of where each member stood on impeachment, finding that the Democrats had the minimum votes needed to pass the articles. Only one article needed to be approved to impeach the president.
Two Democrats Opposed Both Articles of Impeachment

Representatives Jared Golden of Maine, Collin C. Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey were the only Democrats to vote “no” on one or both of the articles of impeachment.

Mr. Van Drew recently said that he plans to switch parties and become a Republican.
