White House Announces Online Petition System

The White unveiled a new webpage on Thursday designed to allow Americans to sign petitions and get their issues noticed by administration officials.

"We the People" is an online platform through which anyone can create or sign petitions seeking action by government agencies, White House adviser David Plouffe said in a statement. If enough people sign a petition, it will be reviewed and answered by White House staff or policy officials.

"We the People gives you a new way to join together with others to ask your government to address a problem, change a policy, or take action on a range of issues," Plouffe said.
