In my very own words, not googled at all: ‘Referendums’ is logically preferable as a plural form meaning ‘ballots on one issue’ (as a Latin gerund, referendum has no plural). The Latin plural gerundive ‘referenda’, meaning ‘things to be referred’, necessarily connotes a plurality of issues.


#8

referendums and referenda are both acceptable plural nouns, I think (referenda sounds better though)


#9
  • should referendums
