District of Columbia
The District of Columbia is a unique federal district of the U.S.
There is a defined process for initiatives and referendums in the District of Columbia. The process is laid out in the D.C. Code. If an initiative receives enough signatures, is put on the ballot, and is approved by voters, it then must go through a 30-day review by the United States Congress.
Voter-approved initiatives include Initiative 59 (legalization of medical marijuana), Initiative 71 (legalization of recreational marijuana), and Initiative 77 (abolishing the separate tipped minimum wage).
