General Election Q&A

Initiative & Referendum

Initiative & Referendum Hailey citizens have the right to enact ordinances through the initiative process, and to repeal ordinances through the referendum process. This process begins with a petition, which must conform to specific standards set forth in Idaho Code Title 34. The initiative and referendum processes give citizens a powerful voice in shaping the laws governing the city.

The City Clerk’s office is available to answer questions about the initiative and referendum processes.
