As of 12:02 p.m. on Tuesday night, Issue 18, the proposed charter amendment that would prevent gambling in the city of Green, is passing with 58 percent of the vote, according to the Summit County Board of Elections unofficial results.

If approved, Issue 18 would prohibit “casino gaming, horse racing, scheme of chance, game of chance or gambling device” from locating in the city, except for nonprofit charitable purposes as authorized by Ohio law or Green City Council.

The issue stems from Rock Ohio Caesars expressing an interest in relocating Thistledown thoroughbred track and a new slots-like video lottery terminal facility to property the Akron-Canton Airport owns.
