In this episode of our pop-up series on the U.S. elections, hosted by Ryan Heath, we dive into the myriad of lawsuits and legal issues surrounding November's elections.

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold explains how her state has successfully handled mail-in voting, and the additional challenges she's facing as a result of the pandemic and President Trump's rhetoric on voting.

POLITICO campaign reporter Zach Montellaro breaks down other issues facing legal battles, from ballot drop boxes to poll watching. "This is will be the most litigious American election probably of all time, even before we get to Election Day," says Montellaro, warning that cases like 2000's Bush vs. Gore decision could pop up in as many as 14 states.

The regular EU Confidential podcast will be back in your feed on Thursday — and Campaign Confidential is with you every Tuesday all the way through to Election Day.
