Oklahoma State Question 214 (Initiative #144) appeared on the 1935 ballot in Oklahoma. It was approved. However, it was later overturned by the Oklahoma Supreme Court, which ruled that it was submitted illegally in the case of ASSOCIATED INDUSTRIES OF OKLAHOMA et al. v. OKLAHOMA TAX COMMISSION.

The objective of the measure was to create a state social security, or "old age pension," program, and to allow the state to raise taxes to fund it.

94,249 signatures were required to qualify it for the ballot.

It was an initiated constitutional amendment.
