The Maine Voting Age of 20 Amendment was on the 1970 ballot in Maine, where it was approved. It was the 113th constitutional amendment added to the Maine Constitution.

The amendment was legislatively-referred to the ballot by the Maine Legislature.

  • In favor: 167,660
  • Opposed: 117,668

The purpose of the amendment was to reduce the age at which a Maine voter could vote to 20.

One year later, Maine voters approved a new constitutional amendment, the Maine Reduction of Voting Age to 18 Amendment (1971), to reduce the voting age to 18.
