Pierre, SD -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.
