Somerset County Council



You can make your petition available online as an e-petition. Making an online e-petition helps you to make it available to a wider audience, giving you the opportunity to gather more names to support the petition.

Petition online

An e-petition is a form of petition posted on a website. Individuals or groups can create e-petitions on the site and visitors can add their details to e-petitions to 'sign' them. The format makes it easy to collect signatures, and it makes it easier for us to respond directly using email. 

To sign the e-petition, you must give your name, address and email address on the form provided. Once you have signed the e-petition, you will receive an email asking you to confirm that you wish to add your name to the e-petition by clicking a link. Once you have done this, your name will be added to the e-petition.

You can start your own e-petition using our e-petition form. You will be asked to provide some basic information about yourself and your e-petition.

We won't do anything with your name and address unless you expressly ask to sign up for other services available on this website. We will use your email address to confirm your signature and, unless you ask us not to, we will also send you notifications when the e-petition status has changed.
