People Waiting On Casino Gambling Decisions In American States
People in America on Tuesday exercised their rights as Americans in record numbers. Voters came from all across the land to ensure that they had their say in this year's election.
The presidential race has been getting most of the attention, but there are also some important casino gambling issues that voters are making decisions on. These issues could determine the speed with which casino gambling continues to grow in America.
In Ohio, there has been a hotly contested battle between proponents and opponents of a new casino in Clinton County. Ads have been run, and both sides have at times gotten heated. In the end, however, it is the voters who decided on Tuesday.
Maryland had a slots question on their ballot. Again, the battle was fierce on both sides of the issue and it was up to voters to decide which side convinced them the most.
"What we are seeing in this election is that there are many more questions regarding gambling on these ballots. That indicates a combination of where the country is financially and where politicians want the future of casino gambling to head," said Peggy Sluman, a political analyst.
As of Tuesday evening many of the polling places in areas where gambling questions were on the ballot had just closed. The votes will be tabulated and the results will be released throughout the night.
