An automatic ballot referral is a ballot measure that is set up by a state's constitution to automatically appear as a statewide ballot proposition under certain circumstances.

Constitutional convention ballot propositions are a form of automatic ballot referral in some states whose constitutions state that every so often, typically every twenty years, a statewide ballot proposition must be placed on the general election ballot asking the voters of the state if they wish to have a constitutional convention.
