On Wednesday, the WSJ noted the Supreme Court Declines to Disturb Ballot Deadlines in North Carolina, Pennsylvania

The court’s newest justice, Amy Coney Barrett, didn’t participate in either decision “because of the need for a prompt resolution” and because she hasn’t had time to fully review the parties’ filings, a court spokeswoman said.
