The seven generally acknowledged forms of direct democracy are:
- The legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.
- The legislatively-referred state statute
- The initiated state statute. This can be either direct or indirect.
- The initiated constitutional amendment.
- The veto referendum, sometimes called the citizen referendum or the statute referendum.
- The statute affirmation (available only in Nevada)
- The recall.
The chart below doesn't include the statute affirmation as a category since it is only available in one state.
