The U.S. Senate voted Thursday to confirm Allison Lee to serve as a Securities and Exchange commissioner, bringing the markets regulator back to full strength.

By a voice vote, the Senate confirmed Ms. Lee to the post, where she will fill a Democratic seat vacated on the five-member commission by Kara Stein.

Ms. Lee spent several years in senior roles at the SEC from 2005 to 2018, including time as an enforcement attorney. Ms. Lee most recently served as counsel to Ms. Stein, who left the agency in January.
