I have seen conflicting opinions on the degree to which congress could regulate the holding of elections beyond just setting the date. The FEC regulates mainly camapaign contributions and disclosure and has been subject to some constitutional court challenges, but it is unclear to me whether or not Congress could enact additional legislation regulating the conduct of elections or extending the remit of the FEC to do so.
