Look under 1-(h) again: "(h) Such other activities as he or she reasonably believes should be prohibited to help preserve and maintain life, health, property or the public peace."
So here's the question, can a governor declared state of emergency be used as a way to force mail in ballots or even cancel an election? After all preserve health in a pandemic, all kinds of crazy crap can be pushed on a society.
In the real world, no. The Presidential election is national-federal, not local-state. So the election vote system must be uniform for all. It is inconceivable say "California gets to vote by iphone" but Iowa must "go the polls in rain or sleet." If push comes to shove, Q has hinted the Supremes will rule.

Thank-you. So "Karen" is synonymous with a "whiner". That's dumb. I hope this "Karen" fad doesn't last long, LOL.
Police stopped Rausch on Sunday after getting a report of a suspicious person with a bow and arrow.
Officials said Rausch initially cooperated but then suddenly pulled a gun on the officers, threatening them and forcing them to hand over their service weapons.
Well, in fairness the guy who invented the PCR test said it shouldn't be used for the purpose it is now being used for. So, there is a test, it just isn't any good at testing.
“In one paper,” Crowe says, “I found 37 cycles. If you didn’t get enough fluorescence by 37 cycles, you are considered negative. In another, paper, the cutoff was 36. Thirty-seven to 40 were considered “indeterminate.” And if you got in that range, then you did more testing. I’ve only seen two papers that described what the limit was. So, it’s quite possible that different hospitals, different States, Canada versus the US, Italy versus France are all using different cutoff sensitivity standards of the Covid test. So, if you cut off at 20, everybody would be negative. If you cut off a 50, you might have everybody positive.”
