Lawsuit seeks authority for Pence to decide which electors are valid

The case explains that the statute orders the vice president, in his capacity as president of the Senate and presiding officer over the January 6, 2021 joint session of Congress, to “count the electoral votes for a state that have been appointed in violation of the Electors Clause” of the Constitution and “limits or eliminates his exclusive authority and sole discretion under the Twelfth Amendment to determine which slates of electors for a state, or neither, may be counted.”
