Liechtenstein

Three referendums were held in Liechtenstein during 1985.[1] The first was held on 3 February on a new hunting law, and was rejected by 62.5% of voters. The second was held on 2 July on increasing the number of seats in the Landtag and had two proposals.[1] Neither gained a majority of votes, so both were rejected.[1] The third was held on 1 December on sexual equality.[1] It also had two options, but both failed to gain a majority and were rejected.[1]
