As November 3rd Approaches, Ohio Casino Gambling Choice Looms
The voters of Ohio have been down this path before, but clearly the feel in the state is different this time around. It is like a sports team that has reached the finals many times, but has yet to win a championship.
For gambling advocates in Ohio, the finals has been making their issue relevant, and on Tuesday, they have as good a chance as any to finally win their title. That would mean legalized casino gambling in the state.
Never has Ohio been this close to casino gambling legalization. There have been plans offered to voters in the past, but each one had flaws, and voters said no. This time, mock polls indicate that residents in the state have had a change of heart.
The debate has been, at times, heated, throughout this process. The anti-gambling groups have been making a push in the past week to keep Ohio as one of the few states without casinos. The economy, however, may prevent these groups from winning this time.
Pro-gambling groups have done a marvelous job of laying out the facts for voters. The revenue and jobs that would be created from casinos for the state would be astronomical in these difficult times. It is money and jobs at a time when not much of either is being produced in Ohio.
The time for debate has only one day left, and then it will be up to the voters much like it has been many times before. This time, however, the chance for victory for the gambling advocates is higher than it ever has been in the past.
