What is a People's Veto?


The Yes on 1 Campaign is a grassroots People's Veto effort to overturn a law passed by our legislature that is not the will of the people. 

A people's veto is a provision allowed by our Maine constitution that gives citizens the opportunity to repeal a piece of legislation. The qualification process is extremely difficult.

Timeline of a veto:

  1. Petition must be filed within 10 days of the close of the legislative session in which the law was enacted

  2. Maine registered voters must collect a total number of citizen signatures equal to 10% of the last total gubernatorial vote = 63,067 for this petition

  3. Signatures must be verified by each individual town/municipality before being presented to the Secretary of State

  4. Deadline for signature submission is 90 days from legislative adjournment

  5. Signatures must be deemed valid by the Secretary of State and meet or exceed the minimum threshold for the law to be placed on the ballot
