The battle over whether to build a $325 million dollar casino in St. Tammany Parish will be decided this weekend, with it being the only thing on the ballot on Saturday.
About 18,000 people in St. Tammany early voted.
P2E, the developer for the proposed casino, has spent millions according to campaign finance reports it must file for its political action committee, Northshore Wins. It’s unclear exactly how much anti-casino groups have spent.
Approval of the Dec. 11 ballot measure would undo a 1996 vote in St. Tammany that banned casinos in the parish.
Proponents and opponents of the measure have waged sophisticated media campaigns in the months leading up to this vote.
