The issue: Charles Town Races & Slots is preparing to ask for an election in Jefferson County in hopes of getting approval from county residents to have casino table games at the track.

What happened: John Finamore, Senior Vice President of Regional Operations for Penn National Gaming Inc., which owns Charles Town Races & Slots, told the Jefferson County Commissioners Thursday morning that track owners have not picked an election date. But the issue will probably be addressed "soon," Finamore said.

What's next: Finamore said he expects track officials to appear before the commissioners in about two weeks to discuss a possible date for the referendum. If it is a special election, the track will pay for the costs, Finamore said.
