8. How to sign an e-petition

All the e-petitions currently available for signature can be viewed on our e-petitions page.

When an e-petition is signed the person will be asked to provide his/her name, postcode and a valid email address. Once this information is submitted an email will be sent to the email address .This email will include a link which must be clicked on in order to confirm the email address is valid. Once this step is complete the signature will be added to the petition. People visiting the e-petition will be able to see the name in the list of those who have signed it, but the contact details will not be visible.
