MoveOn provides tools that help you promote your petition and collect signatures. Some of the fastest growing petitions may also be featured on MoveOn's homepage, and occasionally MoveOn will promote a petition by emailing our members and urging them to sign it.
MoveOn selects petitions to promote by asking our members directly which petitions are most important. We never, ever promote a petition because someone paid us to.
MoveOn delivers constituent signatures for approved petitions by email to governors, Congress, and state legislators, unless you choose to disable auto-delivery on your dashboard. MoveOn delivers signatures to custom targets (i.e. targets you enter manually such as CEOs, local officials, etc.) only if a valid email address is provided.
However, to make sure your petition gets the attention it deserves, you should definitely deliver it personally. Petition targets are most likely to respond when real people deliver the petition in person. So your best bet is to print out the petition after you've finished collecting signatures and deliver it in person. You may even be able to get media attention when it is delivered.
To download a PDF of your petition to print and deliver, click "Manage Petitions" at the top of this page and click "Print." You will then have the option of either printing your entire petition in one document or splitting your petition into multiple documents sorted by state, district, etc. Choose one option, then click "Download Petition." MoveOn will then send you an email with a link to download your petition. This process should only take a few minutes.You can print your petition as many times as you like--printing will not deactivate your petition.
Yes! We encourage you to contact the signers of your petition. Just log into your dashboard and scroll down the page and click "create an email." You can email all of your signers at one time or target a particular geographic area or legislative district.
MoveOn automatically assigns every petition a goal of 50 signatures to begin and then increases the goal each time a signature goal has been reached. Currently, MoveOn does not allow individual petition creators to set their own goals for petition signatures, but you can email us at email@example.com to request a specific signature goal.
After signing a petition, you may receive emails from your petition's creator through our online system. (Don't worry, your actual email address is kept private.) You'll also receive updates from MoveOn.org. You can unsubscribe from all emails at any time, and we never sell or share your email address with outside parties.
Each email from MoveOn includes an "unsubscribe" link at the bottom that you can use to stop receiving future emails.
Click "Manage Petitions" at the top of this screen and log in using the email and password you used when you created your petition.
