You can collect hard copy petition signatures anywhere that people gather – events, markets, workplace, even in the street.
Download this Word document and print the petition sheets. There is a front sheet that has the petition text and a few rows for signatures, and a secondary sheet (containing more rows for signatures) that can be used for of subsequent sheets.
When you have collected a batch of petition signatures, please email us and tell us how many signatures you have collected so we can add them to the running signature total. Please email us a scan or photo of each sheet and tell us where and when they were collected. If you have time, a typed list of the names and email addresses would also be a big help.
If you are planning on collecting more signatures soon, just keep the actual sheets until you have a reasonable batch, then post the sheets to:
Petitions, 12 Liverpool St, Macquarie, ACT, 2614
When you send us the petition sheets, please include a note saying when and where the signatures were collected and saying whether or not you have already sent us scans/photos of the sheets.
You can also give people the option of using their phones to sign the petition online using the QR code in a poster, or even just have an iPad with the online petition page open ready for people to sign online.
