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 180, Laws of 1913, pertaining to a Quincy Valley Irrigation Act did not become law.

Text on the Ballot
