In the United States, an initiative (or "citizens' initiative") is a proposal for a new law, which requires a petition reaching a particular number of signatures which results in a ballot measure being placed before the voters in an election. Usually, when 50%+1 of the electorate approves such a ballot measure the proposed law is enacted, however, in some cases (for instance, on taxation issues) a two-thirds vote may be required. The other way in which newly drafted legislation may be submitted to the voters is by legislative referral.
