Gambling voting measure makes Florida’s November ballot Dara Kam, The News Service of Florida · January 20, 2018 at 5:49 pmFlorida voters could make decisions in the future about casino-style gambling, including slot machines, under a proposed constitutional amendment that will appear on the November ballot.The “Voter Control of Gambling Amendment,” largely bankrolled by a Disney company and the Seminole Tribe of Florida, would require voter approval for any form of casino gambling, an issue now largely controlled by the state Legislature. Backers of the amendment, which will be on the ballot as “Amendment 3,” this week topped the 766,200 petition signatures required to go before voters in November. The Florida Supreme Court last year approved the ballot language. Like all constitutional changes, the proposal requires 60 percent approval from voters in November to pass.If ultimately approved, the proposal would give voters the “exclusive right to decide whether to authorize casino gambling” in the state. The change would require voter approval of casino-style games, such as slots, in the future.
