Maryland voters hold the key to luring in more casino action to the Washington D.C. area when they vote on Question 7 in next month's election. By transferring ownership rights of video lottery terminals back to casino operators and dropping the tax rate on table games, the state could land a bigger commitment from MGM Resorts (MGM +0.8%) and from others down the road. With 40M people visiting the D.C. region every year, MGM could also be a leg up on its rivals.
