This weekend, most parts of the United States will end standard time, as confirmed by a transition to daylight saving time at 2 a.m. on Sunday. While this may result in losing an hour of sleep for one night, it also means gaining more daylight in the evening ahead. Until standard time returns on November 5th, the sun will rise later in the morning but remain light for longer in the evenings. Residents should set their clocks an hour ahead before going to bed on Saturday night. Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas will not observe any time changes. According to a recent poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, most people in the United States want to do away with switching between daylight saving and standard time, with no consensus on which to use all year. 43% of respondents favored standard time, while 32% preferred daylight saving time throughout the year, with only 25% supporting switching times.
