EDITORS/NEWS DIRECTORS: Attorney General Marty Jackley and Pam Roberts joined Gov. Dennis Daugaard at the Capitol Building today to officially cast South Dakota’s electoral votes for Donald Trump and Mike Pence. A photo of the electors signing the certificates of vote is attached.
The Governor and Attorney General appointed Roberts to take the place of Lt. Gov. Matt Michels, who was selected as an elector and could not be present. In the event that an elector cannot attend an Electoral College meeting, state law allows the remaining electors to appoint a replacement. Michels intended to join Daugaard and Jackley in casting a vote for the Trump/Pence ticket but could not because of a scheduling conflict.
