The South Dakota Electoral College voters say they won’t need intelligence briefings before casting their vote for President-elect Donald Trump.

A spokesperson for Governor Dennis Daugaard and Lieutenant Governor Matt Michels says they believe it’s their job to reflect the will of South Dakota voters.

A spokesperson for Attorney General Marty Jackley says he has no plans of receiving intelligence briefings into alleged Russian meddling with the American election system.

President-elect Donald Trump won the state of South Dakota 61 percent of the vote.
