The States run their Federal elections.

So House races will be concluded on time. Same for most Senate seats.

The folly is that Trump does not have the power to compel the States to cancel elections.

Now if only Blue States have elections, that means they'll return new Reps and new Senators to the new Congress. However, with so many States not returning Presidential returns, it means that the POTUS election might be incomplete.

However, there will be enough House and Senate members to inaugurate a new Congress and hence Pelosi becomes President on 3 JAN 2021, until the POTUS election is resolved.
I think Pelosi would become POTUS at noon on January 20th, when Trump's term expires?

I corrected it.

She becomes Speaker again on 3 JAN 2021 if Democrats maintain their majority, which is likely. POTUS on 20 JAN 2021 if the POTUS election is not resolved.

Before we go all game of thrones on delayed elections...

Is there actually a difference between mail in voting and absentee voting? Has anybody looked into the details?

Yes, the primary difference is that mail-in voting is always counted and vetted.

WA State has all mail-in voting and those ballots are processed the moment they arrive to the sorting station. They are then checked against the voter registration rolls, the signature matched, the ballot scanned through the machine, and checked off as that person having voted. Once that happens the person cannot vote again. One can then check to see if their ballot has been processed too online.

Absentee ballots, well, I know from my time in Army that most of them are not even counted in a race unless it is really close. In most instances they are not counted and chucked after the election.

If anything, mail-in ballot systems are better than the absentee system because 1) They are actually counted immediately upon receipt, 2) They verify the voter, 3) They document the vote being counted.

Being honest, the Spanish Flu pandemic that involved hemorrhaging wasn't actually all deaths/symptoms from that strain of flu. A good chunk of the deaths were more than likely caused by aspirin, as it was during the Spanish flu that Bayer pushed everyone to give aspirin to spanish flu patients. And we're not talking low doses, more like doses closer to 2-3 grams, not milligrams. Funny how aspirin became the most prescribed drug during that time huh?
Need the informative rating back. I learned something new. :)

The writing is on the wall, but it's going to be too late. There is no distancing when your head has been that far up Trump's butt.

Like rats from a sinking ship. None of them will even have the balls to do this though. They'll die on this hill before they say anything bad about bunkerboy . . .
