These three cases are on the Supreme Court docket for Friday.

Here is more on today’s Supreme Court cases.
As a reminder, Pennsylvania Democrat officials changed the election rules weeks before the election without consulting the legislative branch. This is unlawful in the state. It will be interesting to see if SCOTUS is the latest lawless branch of government following today’s decisions.

Republican Party of Pennsylvania, Petitioner v. Veronica Degraffenreid, Acting Secretary of Pennsylvania, et al. It used to be Republican Party of Pennsylvania, Petitioner v. Kathy Boockvar, Secretary of Pennsylvania, et al.

No word from SCOTUS yet on whether they will allow the election cases to proceed.
The cases were set for conference today and while I claim no firsthand knowledge of how the Court operates, I assume the Justices confer together in private.
Perhaps we will learn the decisions on Monday on whether the writs of certiorari will be granted. If so, the cases can proceed.
A grant of certiorari requires that a minimum of 4 Justices vote in favor of granting the review.
Hope that helps.
The Supreme Court is also expected to issue opinions next Thursday but this has nothing to do with the election cases on the docket today.
