AUGUSTA, Maine: When residents of the state head to the polls on November 8, 2011, the ballot questions they will see will officially be "Question 1" and "Question 2." On September 2, the Maine Secretary of State issued the ballot order of the two indirect initiated state statutes.[1]

Question 1 will be the racino initiative, which would amend laws governing the deadline for approval of a second racino in the state and allow another tribal racino in Biddeford, Washington County. It would also change other language in the laws that govern the construction and location of those racinos.

Question 2 will be the slot machine initiative, which deals with establishing a slot machine facility in Lewiston, Maine. The political action committee that sponsored the measure was the Green Jobs for ME PAC.
