SD Redistricting Process Results In Inequity

Victoria Wicks

In two years, after the 2020 census, current voting districts can be redrawn. A panel of Black Hills State professors say there are various means of drawing those lines, and all of them have their flaws. But they say any of them would be better than South Dakota's.

The professors presented the history and science of districting in Rapid City on Thursday, Oct. 25. The presentation was the last on an eight-city tour sponsored by the League of Women Voters.

SDPB's Victoria Wicks has this report.
