John Oliver tells his viewers to expect an election month not just an election night

It's been more than three weeks since I posted John Oliver examines the Supreme Court after 'Last Week Tonight' wins four Emmy Awards, so it's time to check in with my favorite talk show host. Watch Last Week Tonight with John Oliver's Election 2020.

Weeks out from the 2020 presidential election, John Oliver takes a look at various efforts to destabilize the vote, how to ensure your ballot is properly counted, and why we may need to prepare not just for an election night, but for an election month.
This is a good summary of all of my concerns about the election that is already in progress, a shortage of poll workers, long voting lines, and voting by mail along with Trump opposing it and trying to sabotage the US Postal Service. One of those concerns is to expect an election month, not an election night, as all those mail-in ballots are counted, which Trump is likely to use as an excuse not to concede. I'm glad Oliver wrapped it all up in a funny if ha-ha only serious manner.

Now to prepare my ballot, which I plan on dropping off later this week or early next week. Off to research down-ballot races!
