If you present a petition with x amount of signatures, does that really help legislation decide on laws?
"Real" physical petitions can be used to do some good...you can't ever guarantee that they will be listened to but they have a real chance.
Online petitions to the gov't as well intended as they may be are simply a waste of your time. No one will recognize them as valid. There is no way to prove the 'signatures'.
Online petitions to business' and such may or may not have an impact depending on the business...
There are several websites you can find that will give you a more detailed explanation of why online petitions don't work; than this gives me space to share...

Not always .Online petitions will not work. Like when you want to petition something ,you need to have peoples names,addresses and signatures.

Online petitions don't help but you can call, write or email your reps and they will respond. Depending on where you live and what it's for, written petitions can carry a lot of weight. Here in Cali a measure has to have a set number of signatures to be put on the ballot for statewide vote.
