The Governor is wrong about the law. It expressly forbids individuals from bringing food or water. It only allows for election officials to set up tables, which presumably could have water on them.
This is the relevant section of the law, emphasis mine:
"(a) No person shall solicit votes in any manner or by any means or method,
nor shall any person distribute or display any campaign material, nor shall any person give, offer to give, or participate in the giving of any money or gifts, including, but not limited to, food and drink, to an elector,
nor shall any person solicit signatures for any petition, nor shall any person, other than election officials discharging their duties, establish or set up any tables or booths on any day in which ballots are being cast
(1) Within 150 feet of the outer edge of any building within which a polling place is"
