When former President Donald Trump challenged the results of the 2020 elections, one of the main debates that boiled to the surface was who decides the laws on the elections. Republicans argued that this legal authority falls on the state legislatures, and that these elected officials are the ones who make the laws and decide which electors get to cast the final votes in the Electoral College. Democrats argued that this power was shared—that state courts and state governors should be able to exercise their own authority and challenge the decisions of the state legislatures.
The Supreme Court settled a key piece of that debate Tuesday. And under the law of the land, the state legislature is not the sole body that determines how our elections are run.
