Voting for the House GOP Speaker Designate Begins at 0900 Tuesday, Oct. 24th

From CNN:

So what happens next? At 9 a.m. ET on Tuesday, the House GOP will vote for their speaker nominee.

With eight candidates in the running, members will cast a successive series of secret ballots, with the candidate who garners the fewest number of votes in each round dropped from the running.

The process will continue until there are only two candidates left or until one candidate receives a majority of the votes, whichever comes first.

Here a plurality of votes is not enough. The winning candidate will need 50% +1 of the conference, or a minimum of 113 votes. The conference vote is expected to take several hours.

There is no time or date scheduled for a floor vote. That will be determined by the speaker-designee.
