On the eve of the election, early-voting numbers suggest that this could be a record-breaking year for midterm turnout. Samantha Bee, hosting a special, election-eve edition of “Full Frontal” on Monday, warned audiences against taking those reports of high turnout as an excuse not to go to the polls themselves.

“You cannot take this election for granted. I certainly won’t make that mistake again. I have a full-on, Ben Affleck-level back tattoo that says, ‘Hillary Clinton is the president and my favorite show is “House of Cards!”’” — SAMANTHA BEE
