First, equal protection is the law. Since you're asking for that to be violated, the courts correctly shoot you down. You can't throw out votes made in good faith just on a technicality, and that violates the voter's equal protection.Law is the law, regardless of when a case is filed.
Second, the remedy for a violation has to be consistent with the violation. Nullifying a whole election because of an insignficant violation is farcical.
If the courts allowed what you want, then there would never again be an uncontested election in the USA. The loser would know that if he just nitpicked a law someone and found a friendly judge, he could always get the election overturned, so every loser would file court challenges. No sane judge would want to set that precedent.
If you want to challenge election law, you have to do it before the election. Doing it after is blatant cheating. The courts know that, so they will not allow it.
