The statute affirmation is a form of citizen-initiated direct democracy available in just one state: Nevada.

In the process of statute affirmation, voters collect signatures in order to place on their ballot a question asking the citizens of the state to affirm a standing state law.

If a majority of voters do affirm the law, the state legislature is then barred from ever amending it. However, the citizens of the state may themselves amend or repeal the law in the future through a direct vote of the people.[1]
