The Maine Relating to Military Referendum, also known as Amendment No. 1, was on the September 8, 1919 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure required that all commissioned officers of the militia be appointed and commissioned by the Governor. It also would have made the Legislature designate qualifications necessary for holding a commission in the militia and shall prescribe the mode of selection of officers for the several grades.[1][2] This repealed and replaced Sections 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Article VII of the Maine Constitution.[3]
