View 1840 Constitution of Maine HERE.

The significance of the 1840 Constitution is that it has the 3 amendments attached.

 LD 1564 “Resolve, Approving the 2013 Draft and Arrangement of the Constitution of Maine Made by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court and Providing for Its Publication and Distribution”, click here.

Constitution of Maine (2013) has no amendments attached.

  1. Lise: It says “all judicial officers shall hold their office in times of good behavior but not beyond seventy five” except justices of the peace, does this mean all these recent appointments are for justice of the peace jobs “only”?

  2. Hi!

    Sorry for the late response. Had eye surgery on March 18th and was out of commission for a while.

    In 1977 a proposed amendment (L.D. 798) was passed to eliminate the constitutional office of the Justice of the Peace.

    This is a fraud.

    The Justice of the Peace office is now a statutory office, and it cannot be lawfully “reduced” to a statutory office, an inferior office. Justices of the Peace NO longer have judicial powers (the Notary Public Office has also been removed unlawfully out of the Judiciary department).

    The “original” Justice of the Peace office was a part of the Judiciary department and has judicial powers to hear some causes but no longer.

    By the way, the current so-called Constitution of the State of Maine does NOT contain any amendments and many “prior” constitutions didn’t have any either.

    In the original Constitution of the State of Maine (1820) in Article X, Section 4 it states that the amendment shall be a part of the constitution. By “adding” amendments allows the people to see what changed over time and when. It is traceable. The 1875 unlawful resolve destroyed this section.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Thank you!
