Maryland's secretary of state John McDonough has certified ballot language for seven statewide questions voters will decide in November. This includes three constitutional amendments, three referendum petitions and a referendum on the expansion of gambling.

Voters will decide whether to allow same-sex marriage and in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants under certain circumstances in two of the referendums. The other referendum asks voters whether they approve of the state's congressional redistricting map.

Voters will also decide whether to amend the state's constitution to remove a public official from office if the officials is found guilty of a felony or misdemeanors related to the official's public duties.

The other two questions relate to qualifications for orphans' court judges in Prince George's and Baltimore counties.
