Justice Clarence Thomas pointed out a serious flaw in the dismissal of voter irregularities, according to The National Review.

Court turned away from challenges to the 2020 election in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, and Michigan.

From The National Review:

[The Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s] decision to rewrite the rules seems to have affected too few ballots to change the outcome of any federal election. But that may not be the case in the future. These cases provide us with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonlegislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle. The refusal to do so is inexplicable. . . . An election system lacks clear rules when, as here, different officials dispute who has authority to set or change those rules. This kind of dispute brews confusion because voters may not know which rules to follow. Even worse, with more than one system of rules in place, competing candidates might each declare victory under different sets of rules.
