BALTIMORE (WJZ) — On the eve of Election Day, Marylanders for and against expanded gambling are trying to garner support in their favor. Jessica Kartalija has the latest on Question 7.

With just hours until Marylanders head to the polls. Politicians on both sides are hoping to sway voters in their direction.

There’s been a multi-million dollar ad campaign for and against Question 7 and now there’s a last minute push on both sides hours before voters head to the polls.

At a rally in Baltimore City, supporters tout the initiative as a way to boost education funding.

“That guarantees the money goes toward education. It guarantees the money here in Maryland helps us with our infrastructure,” said one supporter.

But opponents say they’re bluffing.

“Basically they say this same thing over and over again, that there’s going to be more money for schools and they hope you’re going to believe it, but I think at this point, most people know that’s not the case,” said Delegate Heather Mizeur.

If Question 7 passes, it will allow table games in addition to existing slot machines, increase the state-wide cap on the number of slots and permit a sixth casino at National Harbor in Prince George’s County.

Slot machines have been permitted here in Maryland since voters passed a gaming law in 2008. If passed, Question 7 would bring Maryland casinos closer in line with those in Atlantic City or Las Vegas.

Question 7 opponents held their final push over the weekend with rallies around the state.

“Vote no on Question 7,” said an opponent. “Question 7 is bad for Maryland.”

If Question 7 fails Tuesday, MGM has announced it will drop its bid for the Prince George’s County casino.
