NPVIC Status - SOUTH DAKOTA
November2020 - We expect a push, from the California-based National Popular Vote office, however they are likely to spare South Dakota as they move on Purple States first in 2021, where they believe they have a better chance of winning.
Because of South Dakota's current State government make-up and the pretty strong feelings of independence and States' Rights believed in by most South Dakotans, we feel that South Dakota is a sound and solid Electoral College State, not likely at risk of joining the dangerous NPVIC collusion contract.
Contact South Dakota's Legislature Members
Demand that they take every action possible to STOP the NPVIC whenever it appears.

WYOMING, 10-30-2020 - OPINION: Why the Electoral College does a disservice to Wyoming. By Mark Jenkins, WyoFile. We strongly DISAGREE with this Opinion writer's opinion. He builds his opinion on this most-common of False Foundations.
Backers of the dangerous NPVIC intentionally confuse voters by telling them that they are voting for the PRESIDENT, when the truth has ALWAYS been that - because their STATE has asked them to - they are voting for the STATE's Presidential ELECTORS.
