What is a referendum?
A referendum allows citizens of a locality to vote on a single policy question that directly impacts them. In the case of the Norfolk casino, the Virginia General Assembly is letting voters decide if they want a casino in our city.
Why is the referendum happening?
The referendum will be taking place because it is required by the legislation that was passed by the Virginia General Assembly. The legislation permitted five localities, including Norfolk, with the ability to develop a casino, but only after a majority of the voters in each respective locality voted in favor of the casino.
What will the casino referendum look like on the ballot?
Shall casino gaming be permitted at a casino gaming establishment in the City of Norfolk on property east of Harbor Park Stadium bounded to the north by Park Avenue, to the south by the Eastern Branch of the Elizabeth River, and generally to the east by Norfolk & Western Railway railroad tracks with an approximate street address of 200 Park Avenue, as may be approved by the Virginia Lottery Board?
