Maryland Question 1
An estimated $517 million in tax revenue from casinos will come to the state of Maryland in 2018, and currently, there is no law requiring state legislatures to use that money on the state education system. Under this amendment, 100% of gambling tax revenue would be required to go to education by 2023.
A For vote means you want casino tax revenue to used to fund education in Maryland, and an Against vote means you do not want to fund education using tax revenue from gambling.
Total donated to the campaign to support this measure: $750,000.00
There are no campaigns registered against the measure and have no reported donations opposing Maryland Question 1.
While it is too soon to speculate on the odds for who will win the 2020 Maryland state primary, you will find that there are futures odds for who will win the presidency in 2020. Futures bets are certainly more of a risk, but the payout is also much higher should you wager on the legitimate outcome of the election. Once candidates officially announce their intent to run for President, the betting lines and odds will begin to take shape, and we will, of course, have that information here.
There are 38 Republican delegates up for grabs in Maryland. They are allocated in a winner take all fashion but are split between 14 state delegates and then 24 that are awarded via congressional district. This approach means all candidates could win some of the delegates in Maryland if they win over individual districts. To receive all of the delegates, a candidate would really have to win over the entire state. You can find the latest GOP betting odds here.
Maryland’s Democrat delegates are awarded to candidates proportionally as long as they meet or exceed the 15% minimum vote threshold. Check out our Democratic odds page to see what the latest betting odds from Las Vegas are.
It is far too early to expect to see even futures odds for the Maryland state primary. Once we have information about candidates who are officially in the race, we can begin to start speculating on how the Maryland primaries will pan out.
