Also not a lawyer (or American), but federal elections in Canada are run by Elections Canada, a federal agency, and therefore clarification can go to the Supreme Court directly.

Elections in the US are run by the states, and therefore it has to work its way up the chain.

Supreme Court here though can only offer an interpretation of legislation at the request of the PM.  The PM can't ask the SC to consider an issue and render a decision, which it seems like the President is implying he can do (I suspect he can't).
