The Maine Municipal Indebtedness Referendum, also known as Question No. 3, was on the September 11, 1911 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved.[1] The measure permitted municipalities of 40,000 inhabitants or more to increase their indebtedness to 7.5 percent.[2] This amended Article XXII of the Maine Constitution.[3]


In 1951, a ballot measure attempted to raise the municipal debt limit to seven and a half percent statewide, but it was defeated. However, the measure was later passed in 1954.
