If you live in the state of Maryland, you have undoubtedly seen or heard the commercials. Question is, what exactly is “Question 7?”
Question 7 is an effort to expand commercial gaming in Maryland. Lawmakers argue expanded gambling will raise revenue for education. A vote for Question 7 would be in favor of three attempts to expand gambling.
1) Authorization of table games
2) Increase from 15,000 to 16,000 allowable lottery machines
3) An increase in the number of video lottery machine operation licenses allowed in Maryland from five to six – allowing a proposed casino in Prince George’s County.
How should you vote?
If you are in favor of casino expansion in Maryland, a casino in Prince George’s County, table games in casinos or more games in casinos, you probably want to vote for the measure.
If you are opposed to any or all of the above, you probably want to vote against the measure.
