if Trump "loses" the election, can he contest the validity of mail in ballots? will Supreme Court maybe side with him now since Amy Barret?

and if so, will they appoint a new election and make anyone who sent mail in ballots to have to go to a poll to vote? mean time will there be a civil war due to mass riots and protests?

    They cannot appoint a new election.

    if an state is decided by less than a million votes I'm guessing both sides will call for recounts and investigations.... and thanks to the reckless nature of the "emergency" mail-in systems implemented by several states (sending ballots to every name on the voter registration lists without verifying residency, eligibility or even if those voters were still alive) there will be ample grounds to contest the results...

    there is not process in place for a "re do"....and the court itself does not certify the results... they only decide whether or not the means used to collect, count and certify or exclude votes is Constitutional.

    There will be no revoting. The Constitution doesn't allow that.  If the election is contested legally in anyway you will be surprised to find that the new court is not as conservative as you think. Chief Justice Roberts is probably more liberal than many think. The Court is also going to bend over backwards to stay out of the fray as much as possible. It took a big PR blow during the Gore/Bush election and it will want to avoid that as much as possible.
