An e-petition is a form of petition on a website. Individuals or groups can create a petition on the site and visitors can add their details to the petition to 'sign' it. The format makes it easy to collect signatures, and it also makes it easier for us to respond direct using e-mail. You can also have a paper version of the petition running alongside the e-petition for people without internet access. Their signatures will be added as 'offline' signatures by the Petitions Officer.
