The Maine Manufacture and Sale of Intoxicating Liquors Referendum, also known as Question No. 1, was on the September 11, 1911 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have abrogated and annulled the 26th amendment adopted on September 8, 1884, which prohibited the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors, not including cider. It included an exception for sale of liquor for medicinal purposes. This repealed Article XXVI of the Maine Constitution.
