Eight statewide ballot measures were on the November 7, 1995 ballot in Maine.

Two indirect initiated state statutes did not appear on the ballot, although their sponsors collected enough signatures. This was because, as per the laws governing the initiative process in Maine, the state legislature exercised its rights to enact the legislation proposed in the initiatives. When this happens, the initiatives do not appear on the ballot because they have already been enacted.[1]
