Please take a few minutes to look at two or three similar petitions to get ideas of how to write a successful petition.

Once you have a sense of how our petitions work, prepare your petition statement; hundreds or thousands of people will read your petition, so take the time to get it right. We recommend using word processing software to prepare the text of your petition statement (which you can then copy and paste into this form when it is all ready)

Please consult the FAQ page for additional information.

Once petitions have been created, they cannot be edited.
