A referendum on the use of nuclear power was held in Czechoslovakia in 1964. Voters were asked whether they approved of a law allowing the peaceful use of nuclear power, particularly relating to the start-up of the Bohunice Nuclear Power Plant. The referendum passed, with 62.5% voting in favor. As a result, the building of the power plant in Jaslovské Bohunice (western Slovakia) was finished in 1969 and was commissioned on October 24, 1970.

Electoral system

The referendum required a turnout of at least 50% for the referendum to be valid. Voters were asked the question "Should nuclear energy be developed in Czechoslovakia through construction of nuclear power plants?"

Campaign

Supporters of the plant argued that it would mean the country would not have to buy electricity from Germany, while opponents criticed of some features of nuclear power including its safety. Nuclear waste disposal was also widely recognized as a major problem.
