Sure they can - if they can somehow get enough law enforcement or
military to arrest/shoot up/confiscate/et cetera the people trying to
run elections and/or the equipment being used to run them.

"We have received legitimate terrorist threats against every polling
station.  They're all closed.  Anyone ignoring this order will be
arrested for endangering public safety."

This requires cooperation of those under them, but most of a
president's power requires that anyway.
