So where are we now? South Dakota gets 3 electoral college votes in presidential elections. That's not a huge number, but sometimes these things come down to the wire. Thirteen Reasons Why previously won teen book awards in Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, and South Carolina (27, 6, 8, 11, 15, 7, and 8 votes). In 2012, I'll be 37 years old, which is two years older than I need to be to run for President. Since a good chunk of the teens who voted for 13RW will be casting presidential votes in two-and-a-half years, I might have a shot at 85 electoral votes...with only 185 more needed to win.
Thank you, South Dakota!!!
