Almost didn't get 100% because it didn't take just Oklahoma for Oklahoma City, although it did take Salt Lake without City.

That's because people actually call it Salt Lake (without the City). Don't think they do that for OKC.

But I thought it is generally acceptable for cities with 'city' in their name to just take their first name on this site, no matter what they are called. I am so used to it I didn't think to type Oklahoma City. This reminds me of the time when Mexico City did not get accepted on the World Capitals quiz unless you typed its full name, while Guatemala and Kuwait were accepted, before the QM changed that.

No one calls OKC "Oklahoma" because that's the name of the state. I wish people would do the same for NYC, but that'll always be New York to most people. Anyway, OKC is accepted on here, so it's ok (no pun intended).

Why should it be accepted? Minneapolis never was a state capital.

Of course not. Minneapolis is not the capital.

Surprised not to see Montpelier. That place is pretty far out.

My strategy was just start west as those states are more spread out. All of the New England states and just the whole east coast are smaller states size wise, so I made a safe bet that they wouldn't be here.

It's only about 120 miles from Concord NH by the roads, 80-90 miles as the crow flies (Depending on how you measure--closest city limits, city centers, etc.).
