Act162this is on a distinguished road
Default

one candidate flew out immediately and started pitching in passing out water and supplies.

the other candidate stayed home and plotted out a lawsuit to stall the election (ostensibly, "for the people of Puna").

the elections officer (Nago) probably either didn't think it through, or was pressured to push the election asap to the advantage (or detriment) of one of the candidates.

i suspect turnout will be low, since if it comes down to roof over your head and electricity or voting for someone you've got no stake in, most would choose to restore housing and utilities. I think law says that they have up to 21 days to figure out how to handle this - not sure what the big rush was unless it was no accident.
