    but the key is finding a Constitutional basis for that argument.

    Article II says a state's Electors shall be chosen "in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct", but says Congress may specify the "time of chusing the electors" (i.e. set the election day).  

    I'm not an expert, but that sounds like a state can change the rules -- but I think even a Republican Supreme Court would have a tough time allowing the rules to change after election day.
