CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A ban on video lottery at the Charles Town Races, passed by the Jefferson County Commissioners in 1990, won't have any effect on the overwhelming approval of the games by voters two weeks ago, according to Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Michael Cassell.
Cassell, who represents the commissioners, said they wanted to know if they should take any action on the ban following the approval of the games.
Cassell said in a written opinion to the commissioners that video lottery is part of the West Virginia Lottery system and the county does not have any control over it.
