- A referendum is a direct vote in which an entire electorate is asked to vote on a particular proposal
- This may result in the adoption of a new law
- Some definitions of 'plebiscite' suggest that it is a type of vote to change the constitution or government of a country
- However, some other countries define it differently
- For example, Australia defines 'referendum' as a vote to change the constitution, and 'plebiscite' as a vote that does not affect the constitution
- In Ireland, the vote to adopt its constitution was called a "plebiscite", but a subsequent vote to amend the constitution is called a 'referendum', and so is a poll of the electorate on a non-constitutional bill
