    One thing positive you can say about dead people: they all come out for the vote.

    I don’t know if I’m just having a brain fart or what, but I’m sitting here wondering if for “Issues” like this one, is it based on how the total # of people voting vote or is it based on districts? Like my district will probably be heavily against so is my vote lost in the majority or will I be able to cancel the vote of a less urban district that may see the falsely advertised value in casinos?

    It’s a simple state-wide majority.

    I am 99% certain that on statewide issues, it’s only the total statewide vote count.

    OK, I don’t know why, I just started dying inside thinking that wasn’t the case. But man, that’s even more scary that people in Cleveland and Cincy could force us to have that ugly mess in our downtown. Ugh, this worries me.

    I can’t tell whether that’s a shadow on her left shorts leg, or a pee stain.

    Her face would be a physical attribute. A possible pee stain is not.

    Well, I gamble fairly (too) often at Casinos in Indiana and New Jersey and I’ve always wanted to the option to gamble here. But I’m not voting for this Issue either. If we’re going to allow gambling or slots here in Ohio it needs to be done in an open and fair manner that is in the best interest of Ohio. This simply gives a handful of people the right to build Casino’s and that isn’t the best way. I don’t know why there hasn’t been a generic issue placed on the ballot that would allow casino gambling here with rules set by the State. Why does it always have to be certain parties being allowed to build casinos?

    Anyway, it’s really no skin off my nose if we don’t have gambling here (we do actually have gambling in Ohio just not in casinos). I don’t do it as much as I used to and Hollywood or Wheeling is less than 2 hours away if I feel like gambling. Really Ohio kind of missed the boat on casino gambling anyway. People don’t have the money to gamble like they did 5 years ago. We’ve let hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue literally drive out of the state over the last decade or so. It’s really not going to make *that* much of a difference having it here now.
