An article in The Washington Post states that, 'voters appeared willing to look past concerns about traffic and vice to allow Baltimore-based Cordish Cos. to move forward with its proposed 4,750-machine slots parlour next to the Arundel Mills shopping mall.'

The report quotes Maryland Jockey Club President Tom Chuckas as saying, "The citizens have spoken." Chuckas has stated that live horse racing at Laurel Park will cease as a result of the decision.
