The Oklahoma Registration of Electors Initiative, also known as State Question 80, was on the November 7, 1916 ballot in Oklahoma as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have prohibited the legislature from passing any act pertaining to the registration of voters. The measure also would have provided for registrars and city clerks for the registration of electors throughout the state.[1]
