The Maine Municipal Home Rule Referendum, also known as Proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 3, was on the November 4, 1969 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved.[1] The measure provided for municipal home rule. This means that municipalities could alter and amend their charters on matters of a local and municipal nature not otherwise prohibited by the Constitution or general laws. The procedure for doing so was to be proscribed by the Legislature.[2] This measure added Article VIII-A, Section 1 to the Maine Constitution.[3]
