The Maine Treasurer and Secretary of State Vacancies Referendum, also known as Question 7, was on the November 3, 1992 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved.[1] The measure allowed the deputy treasurer of state to fill a vacancy in the position of state treasurer and the first deputy secretary of state to fill a vacancy in the position of secretary of state. They would fill these vacancies until the legislature elects a new official to fill the vacancy in the current session, if in session, or the next regular or special session. This amended Sections 1-A of Part Second and Part Third of Article V of the Maine Constitution.[2][3]
