The Aurora Sentinel reports that more than 130,000 signatures have been presented to the Colorado secretary of state asking for a November vote on expanded gambling at Arapahoe Park in Aurora, Col.

The signatures, which well exceed the needed 50,000 required to be placed on the ballot, are calling for slot machines and table games at the track.

The Sentinel reports the measure will face opposition from the state's existing casinos in historic mining towns, while supporters say it would raise $100 million annually for public schools.
