A Maine Power Authority Initiative, appearing on the ballot as Measure 1, was on the November 6, 1973 ballot in Maine. It was a measure to create the Power Authority of Maine. It failed.

  • In favor: 95,645
  • Opposed: 151,480

The question on the ballot was, ""Shall an Initiated Bill 'An Act Creating the Maine Power Authority' become Law?"

It was the eleventh initiative to appear on the Maine ballot subsequent to the time that I&R was approved as a process in Maine in 1908.
