Slots a Top Question Mark for Maryland Voters

High turnout expected in Maryland Tuesday

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- With one day left before a historic presidential election, gambling opponents are rallying to stop an effort to legalize slot machines, while supporters hope Election Day will bring jackpots and badly needed revenue for the state.

With Barack Obama solid in a state where registered Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1, the constitutional amendment on slot machines is a top statewide political question mark.

Voters also will decide on an early voting amendment whether they want Maryland to join more than 30 states and set aside more time to cast their ballots.

Turnout is expected to be very high, and state elections officials said they're ready.
