Tips for a Successful Petition
  • Keep it short and simple!
  • A short, catchy, headline is the single most important part of your petition.
  • Tell people why your target is the best person to petition on this issue (e.g. “Send a letter to the Governor because she is the only person who can sign the bill into law”).
  • Ask the target of your petition to do something specific (e.g. “please vote yes on this bill” or “stop testing your lipstick on animals”).
  • Always attach a photo or video to your petition.
  • Use social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to help recruit people to sign your petition.
  • Send a follow-up message to everyone who has signed your petition. Tell them what happened or give some additional information about the issue.
