We prove the ergodicity of the Wang–Swendsen–Koteck\’y (WSK) algorithm for
the zero-temperature $q$-state Potts antiferromagnet on several classes of
lattices on the torus. In particular, the WSK algorithm is ergodic for $q\ge 4$
on any quadrangulation of the torus of girth $\ge 4$. It is also ergodic for $q
\ge 5$ (resp. $q \ge 3$) on any Eulerian triangulation of the torus such that
one sublattice consists of degree-4 vertices while the other two sublattices
induce a quadrangulation of girth $\ge 4$ (resp.~a bipartite quadrangulation)
of the torus. These classes include many lattices of interest in statistical
