South Dakota’s three Republican presidential electors have cast their support for Donald Trump.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard, Attorney General Marty Jackley and state Republican Party Chairwoman Pam Roberts cast their votes Monday in Pierre.

Electors are gathering in every state Monday to formally elect Donald Trump president even as anti-Trump forces try one last time to deny him the White House.

Electors around the country have been inundated with emails, letters and phone calls urging them not to cast their ballots for Trump.

Trump carried South Dakota in the November election. He is poised to win 306 of the 538 electoral votes under the state-by-state distribution of electors.

Roberts substituted for Lt. Gov. Matt Michels, who was chosen as an elector but couldn’t attend the meeting because of a scheduling conflict.
