Yes. In the early stages of American government each state was required to write up their own constitution and Bill of Rights so that the power was given to the states.

Asked in US Constitution
Why are states represented equally and based upon population?
In Congress, there are two houses. The House of Representatives and the Senate. In the House of Representatives states are represented by their population. And in the Senate states are represented equally. When the Founding Fathers were writing the Constitution the large populated states want to be represented by population, so they would have more say in government while smaller states want to be represented equally so they would have an equal say in government as the large states. The Great Compromise made it how it is today, so both sides got there way, equal representation and representation by population.
