Referendums

A referendum is held when a government seeks a direct Yes or No answer from electors about an issue. A Queensland referendum is passed when a majority of electors statewide vote in favour of a proposal.

Queenslanders have voted at seven State referendums listed below and have passed only two, the Federation (1899) and Religious Instruction (1910) referendums.

For more information about Queensland State referendums please see the Referendums Act 1997.
