The referendum is a procedure that refers a proposed or existing law or statute to voters for their approval or rejection. A popular or petition referendum (a lees used device) refers an already enacted measure to voters before it can go into effect.

Sometimes there is confusion about the differences between the Initiative and referendum because referendum is frequently used in a casual or generic way to describe all ballot measures.
