To the Editor:

With all due respect to Grace Freeman’s letter to the editor (Nov. 18, 2022, issue) she doesn’t understand the legal requirements for dividing the state into legislative districts. Legislative districts are required by United States Supreme Court decision and by the South Dakota Constitution to have similar populations. None of the 66 counties in South Dakota are entitled to have their “own” legislators.
