Sunday, November 1 will have 25 hours instead of the usual 24 as the end of daylight saving time happens at 2 a.m., rolling back to 1 a.m. for a do over of the past hour.

On the plus side, it means one hour of extra sleep.

It also means there’s one more hour until the election is finally ended . . .
