In Oklahoma In re Initiative Petition No. 365, the Oklahoma Supreme Court unanimously ruled on November 13, 2002 that signatures on an initiative petition can't be invalidated just because the signer's name isn't on the state's computerized list of registered voters.

Petition 365 later appeared on the ballot as Oklahoma State Question 687 (2002). It was a citizen-initiated measure to ban cockfighting in the state; once the measure was allowed to appear on the ballot, it won decisively.
