Best practices for delivering your petition
You have reached your petition goal and downloaded your signatures, now it is time to deliver your petition to its target. Listed below are a few different methods to consider when delivering your petition, but we encourage you to be creative and do what’s appropriate for your campaign.
1. In-person Delivery
- Set-up a meeting- Set up a private meeting or look for a public event that you can attend to contact your target.
- Recruit supporters- If you set up an office meeting, a smaller group may be better. For a large press conference or rally, having more supporters will help create exposure.
- Contact local media- Once you have set up a time and location for delivery, contact the local media and inform them of your plan.
- Record the event and share it as an update on your campaign
2. Email Delivery
- Send out a complete list of the signatures- Make sure you include the letter of your petition that states your demands along with the signatures you’ve gathered.
- Contact media- If you are emailing the petition signatures, copy specific media contacts into the cc line of the email.
- Keep a record of exactly what you sent to your target- Print the email so that no one can claim it was not received or that portions were missing.
We’re firm believers in harnessing the enthusiasm and support of your campaign. We hope delivering these signatures help you achieve your goals!
