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 48, Laws of 1913 pertaining to a Teacher's Retirement Fund did not become law.

Text on the ballot
