It's not allowed for there not to be one without changing the US constitution.

Most probably yes in most states. Federal law requires that states hold elections for the Senate and the U.S. House on the first Tuesday after the First Monday in November. Federal law also requires that states choose their electors for President on that date in accordance with the state laws specifying the manner of choosing the electors. Currently, every state has opted to use some variation of the popular vote for President to choose their electors.
It is highly unlikely that the federal law will be changed especially as the Constitution is clear that the current terms end on January 20. If the election is not resolved by that date (e.g., if the House was still trying to pick between the top candidates after nobody got an electoral vote majority), the next-in-line serves as acting President until the election is resolved. The next-in-line is currently Speaker Pelosi.
At the state level, a significant number of states already allow "no excuse" voting by mail which could be easily transitioned to a full vote-by-mail election. Even in states that require an excuse for an absentee ballot, if the current health crisis continues, you would probably have most voters using health as the reason for voting absentee.

Yes, states run the national elections, and the states will have them.
State governments run primary elections - not the parties - in essentially the same way they run the general election.State laws determine if these primaries are closed, meaning only those registered with that party can vote, or open, where unaffiliated voters can also participate.If a candidate wins a primary election, they win either all or a proportion of the state's delegates, depending on party rules. Those delegates will then vote for them at the party convention, where the presidential nominee is officially named.It's a system that became widespread for the presidential election in the 1970s. Before that, a nominee was selected by party members at conventions.

maybe they could do drive-thru voting.
