BROOKLYN - New York residents will head to the polls on Tuesday to cast their votes on a controversial gambling measure.

Known as Proposition 1, the plan is expected to create thousands of jobs through the construction of casinos, and bring in more than $238 million in annual revenue for the state.

Some voters say they believe the plan will pay great dividends toward the economy, while others say they'd like to see New York City improve in more practical ways.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo supports the proposition.
