UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (CNS TV) -- "Question 3" in Maryland is not getting the attention the other ballot measures are getting in the state.

You'll see a lot of commercials on television for Question 7 (proposed casino in Prince George's County).

Experts believe you won't see a lot of money spent on Question 3, because the measure is about the politicians themselves.

Under current Maryland law, convicted elected officials can continue to hold office after a guilty verdict is delivered, but before they are sentenced.

If ballot Question 3 passes, elected officials will be removed from office immediately upon conviction.

Josh Fendrick, reporter for the University of Maryland's Capital News Service has the story, (watch video above).
