Veto referendum

Two states, Maryland and New Mexico, afford their citizens the right of a veto referendum, without initiative rights.

Veto referendum is a synonym for a citizen referendum. It is also sometimes called a statute referendum or a "statute remand." It refers to times when:

  • A state government enacts a new law;
  • A group that opposes the new law collects enough signatures within the statutory timeframe in that state to place that new law on a statewide ballot for the voters to either endorse it as a law, or to withhold their approval.
