No they do not. Article 9 and 10 are just words on paper, they may say you
can't do something but they have the power to prevent something from
happening only if people think what the constitution says is important, and
we already know that 52% of Republicans think it is not, they'd be fine
with canceling the 2020 election if Trump gave them the word. And Trump
hasn't yet even started his PR offensive by ordering his mindless followers
to start a "fake election" chant at one of his nuremberg style rallies.
