The Maine Municipality Election Returns to Secretary of State Referendum, also known as Proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 10, was on the November 3, 1964 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved.[1] The measure clarified the procedure for municipalities to submit their election returns to the Secretary of State by removing outdated language regarding selectmen and plantations and by replacing the specific deadline for reporting elections results with "forthwith."[2][3]
