Altering petitions? Other petition sites/replies
5 years ago
We do have an urgent question:
is it possible for the petitioners to alter their petitions IN ANY WAY after the collection of signatures?
We would appreciate an answer, thank you
1) Thank you for writing.
No, unfortunately, we are unable to make any changes once a petition has been signed.
I apologize for any inconvenience.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
Thank you for your support and have a great day.

Sincerely,  Liz

Maybe copying the title of the petition to sign into the remarks field, before signing, will give more guarantees that a signature is used for the petition as mentioned only...(   At it is possible to click on the petitioners name and see what kind of person it concerns (other petitions signed, f.e.), to continue
