Washington (CNN)The Senate is set to take a key procedural vote Sunday to advance Judge Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination, paving the way for a final confirmation vote, which will likely take place Monday evening, just days before the November 3 election where control of Congress and the White House are at stake.

With few exceptions, Senate Republicans quickly lined up in support of Barrett after her nomination by President Donald Trump, and the judge is on track to be confirmed despite opposition from Democrats.

Democrats have warned that Barrett's confirmation will put health care protections and the future of the Affordable Care Act in jeopardy and have accused Republicans of hypocrisy in moving ahead with the nomination after blocking consideration of former President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland in 2016.

When the Senate Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to advance the nomination, Democratic senators on the panel boycotted the vote, filling their seats instead with pictures of people who rely upon the Affordable Care Act in an effort to draw attention to an upcoming case on the health care law's constitutionality and their arguments that Barrett's confirmation would put the law at risk.
