TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Now that the state has paved the way for a casino to come to Vigo County, the next step is for the community to decide.
That decision may be made this year.
During a certification of the May municipal primary, Vigo County election officials addressed the referendum.
According to Vigo County Clerk Brad Newman, the hope is for the referendum regarding the casino to be placed on the November ballot.
The public question, according to EHB 1015, will read “Shall inland casino gambling be permitted in Vigo County?”
The November election is a municipal election, which means city residents will be voting on city seats. But since the casino referendum will be a county-wide issue, Newman wants to make it easy for county residents to vote.
