Initiative and Referendum League of Maine

Jump to: navigation, search

The Initiative and Referendum League of Maine was organized in Maine in 1905 to promote initiative in the state. The group described itself as "inter-partisan" in nature and said that its goal was to secure "the people's right to a direct vote on questions of public policy."

A main way the group worked toward its goal was by contacting every candidate for the state legislature to ask what their views were on the initiative & referendum process, making it clear that candidates risked the displeasure of the group unless they said they'd support it if elected.

The State Grange endorsed the group.

Roland Patten was the group's press secretary.
