White House Quadruples Petition Signature Threshold To 100K

Not so long ago, it only took 5,000 signatures to get a response from the White House. Then, once people started signing petitions, the number grew to 25,000. Today, that number has quadruple to 100,000. Keep "pestering" the government with petitions and pretty soon it will be 250,000. frown

Starting today, as we move into a second term, petitions must receive 100,000 signatures in 30 days in order to receive an official response from the Obama Administration. This new threshold applies only to petitions created from this point forward and is not retroactively applied to ones that already exist.
