Petitions are important for demonstrating public interest in a specific issue. Community Boards need them for promoting projects and prioritizing budget needs. However, getting a substantial amount of signatures on a petition is time-consuming. An online petition sign-up tool can make it easier for Boards to collect more signatures, faster.
On their websites, Community Boards can provide sign-up options for petitions. People sign the petition online, and the Board collects all the signatures digitally.
For example, see online petition tools such as change.org and ipetitions.com.
