The Oklahoma Sale of Public Lands Initiative, also known as State Question 5, was on the November 3, 1908 ballot in Oklahoma as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have authorized the sale of school and public lands at public auction. The measure would have limited sales to 160 acres, until 1915, when it would have allowed the limit to be increased to 320 acres. It was Oklahoma's first citizen initiative.[1]
