The 2000 United States presidential election in South Dakota took place on November 7, 2000, and was part of the 2000 United States presidential election. Voters chose three representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

South Dakota was won by Governor George W. Bush by a 22.74 point margin of victory.

Electors[edit]

The electors of each state and the District of Columbia met on December 18, 2000[1] to cast their votes for president and vice president. The Electoral College itself never meets as one body. Instead the electors from each state and the District of Columbia met in their respective capitols.

The following were the members of the Electoral College from the state. All were pledged to and voted for George Bush and Dick Cheney:[2]

  1. Carole Hillard
  2. William J. Janklow
