The proposal to license four casinos in Ohio will be placed on the November
ballot and decided by voters. The Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner
certified there were enough valid signatures on petitions to place the issue on
the ballot. She found 452,956 legitimate signatures in the 850,000 submitted.
The number needed was 402,000.

the issue rather than elected officials.
"Enough of the rich fighting the rich to see who gets our money," said Toledo
resident Tom Carruthers. "Just give us our freedom to choose, and hopefully they
have to fight each other for our business."
