There is no constitutional requirement on a date for election day. There is a requirement for inauguration day.
Isn’t there the electoral college vote requirement?

I would have bet you $100 that you were wrong. But I just looked it up. By golly, you are right.
Exactly. This wouldnt delay the taking office, but simply the voting.
The date is set by federal code to be the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. Been that way for well over 100 years if I recall.
I think where he may be going, or could go, is questioning why it is OK for some states to flaunt the federal code by having “rolling elections” that allow people to vote some 30 days before the election and/or to force feed them ballots by mail based on outdated registration rolls... why can the date be moved forward, and not backward?
