Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

Do you favor amending the Constitution of Maine to require that a petition for a people's veto be voted on at the next statewide or general election, rather than at a special election?

This Resolution would authorize an amendment to the Constitution of Maine to allow a petition for a people's veto to be voted on at the next statewide or general election rather than at a special election. The Amendment deletes current language, which allows a petition for the people's veto to be voted on at a special election.
