A "yes" vote for a veto referendum is a vote in favor of the legislative act that those who collected signatures to force onto the ballot are hoping to overturn. A "no" vote is a vote against the legislative act that provoked the veto referendum.
In this case, Chapter 46, Laws of 1915, regarding a Port Commission Act, did not become law.
