Online petitions

Introduction

This guide is intended to show activists how to create an online petition.

 

Overview

The petition is a tool that has been used by activists for years. In the past, the petition has taken the form of a written request for action that is accompanied by a collection of signatures. Contemporarily, however, activists are opting for online petitions.

PetitionOnline

PetitionOnline offers free online hosting of public petitions.

PetitionOnline instantly generates web-based petitions from user-submitted online forms. Functioning as an online clipboard, the website collects and displays all petition signatures. As each petition is self-contained, accessibility for would-be signers is available via the petition URL.

The tool's aim is the advancement and promotion of grassroots democracy.
