According to ESPN, The Raiders received 31 of 32 votes to approve the move. Only 24 votes were needed.
“I have mixed feelings; it’s very bittersweet,” Raiders owner Mark Davis told ESPN.com after the announcement was made Monday. “I understand [Oakland fans] will be angry and disappointed. I want them to know that I do understand that it’s emotional. Raider Nation is the greatest fan base in the world and we’re going to build something to make them proud.
“But I also want them to give as much support to the team as possible as we attempt to bring a championship to the Bay Area.”
The Miami Dolphins were the only team to vote against the move.
“My position today was that we as owners and as a league owe it to the fans to do everything we can to stay in the communities that have supported us until all options have been exhausted. I want to wish Mark Davis and the Raiders organization the best in Las Vegas,” Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said in a statement.
The Raiders will still play in Oakland in 2017, and possibly longer.
