Ballot measure#Types of ballot measures
A reverse referendum in Minnesota was authorized by state statute 361A.06 as a way for local property owners to vote on whether or not to establish special local taxing districts. The statute has two subdivisions.

Subdivision 1, "Petition," says, "Upon receipt of a petition signed by at least 25 percent of the property owners within the territory of the proposed district, before the effective date of its establishment as specified in section 365A.05, the establishment shall be in abeyance pending referendum vote within the boundaries of the proposed district."

Subdvision 2, "Election," says, "The town board shall hold a special election within the boundaries of the proposed district not less than 30 nor more than 90 days after receipt of the petition. The question submitted and voted upon by the property owners within the territory of the proposed district must be phrased substantially as follows:

"Shall a subordinate service district be established to provide (service or services to be provided) financed by (revenue sources)?"

If a majority of those voting on the question favor creation of the district, the district shall begin upon certification of the vote by the town clerk. The town clerk shall administer the election."
