A South Dakota activist says she is “totally shocked” that she got a vote for president from the Electoral College this week.
Sixty-eight-year-old Faith Spotted Eagle of Lake Andes received one vote Monday from an elector in Washington state.
She tells The Daily Republic her getting the vote is a reflection of “the time that we live in.”
An enrolled member of the Yankton Sioux Tribe, Faith Spotted Eagle is an opponent of major oil pipeline projects, including the Dakota Access pipeline.
