Veto Referendum is the term used in Maine to refer to times when the state legislature passes a new state statute, and an opposing citizen's group collects enough signatures within the statutory timeframe to place that new statute on a general election ballot for the voters to either endorse it as a law, or to withhold their approval, in which case the law will not go into effect.
