  Referendum \Ref`er*en"dum\ (r?f`?r*?n"d?m), n.; pl. {-da}
     [Gerundive fr. L. referre. See {Refer}.]
     1. A diplomatic agent's note asking for instructions from his
        government concerning a particular matter or point.
        [1913 Webster]
  


     2. The right to approve or reject by popular vote a meassure
        passed upon by a legislature.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. The principle or practice of referring measures passed
        upon by the legislative body to the body of voters, or
        electorate, for approval or rejection, as in the Swiss
        cantons (except Freiburg) and in various local governments
        in the United States, and also in the local option laws,
        etc.; also, the right to so approve or reject laws, or the
        vote by which this is done. Referendum is distinguished
        from the mandate, or instruction of representatives by the
        people, from direct government by the people, in which
        they initiate and make the laws by direct action without
        representation, and from a plebiscite, or popular vote
        taken on any measure proposed by a person or body having
        the initiative but not constituting a representative or
        constituent body.
        [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
