Text on the Ballot
Voters were asked, "Do you favor the changes in Maine law limiting protected classifications, in future state and local laws to race, color, sex, physical or mental disability, religion, age, national origin, familial status and marital status, and repealing existing laws?"
The measure was titled on the ballot as An Act to Limit Protected Classes Under Maine Law. The objective of the initiative's supporters was to limit the number of different "protected classes" under Maine's anti-discrimination laws to the ones already in effect--that is, to prevent the state legislature from adding additional protected classes.
