(WESH) The state's voters on Tuesday approved Amendment 13, which bans betting on greyhound races starting in 2021.

Florida voters have approved an amendment that bans betting on greyhound races, starting in 2021. 

The 11 tracks that still have the sport will be allowed to keep their more profitable poker rooms, simulcast betting and, in South Florida, slot machines.

The sport remains in five other states.
