Maryland voters will decide controversial ballot measures

Measures on the ballot in Maryland

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland voters could become the first in the nation to decide by popular vote to allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at public colleges.

The ballot question is one of several high-profile ballot measures before voters on Tuesday. Students would have to attend a Maryland high school for three years, and they or their parents would have to show they filed state income tax returns to qualify.

Maryland voters also will decide whether to expand gambling to include table games like blackjack and a casino near the nation's capital. They'll be voting after being bombarded by more than $80 million in advertisements.
Voters also will be deciding whether to allow same-sex marriage. The state's congressional redistricting map also has been petitioned to the ballot.
