We are a little more than a week away from Election Day 2020. Counting every ballot and determining the winner could take time, especially with more Americans voting by mail. We’ve waited before. In 2000, Texas Gov. George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore were locked in a legal battle over Florida’s ballots for more than a month. Eventually, a U.S. Supreme Court ruling led to Bush’s victory by just 537 votes. HBO recently released “537 Votes,” a documentary chronicling the events leading up to Florida’s chaotic recount. Soledad O’Brien speaks with Billy Corben, the film’s director about lessons learned.
