Review White House Petitions Site
Petition Background (Preamble):
The Obama Administration created a petition site in September, 2011. This author submitted a petition similar to the one at the bottom of this page a few months later, but it expired without acquiring enough signatures. Since then, this page has been maintained at GoPetition for anyone else wishing to endorse it.
Whether or not this new petition is successful, this page's chronological list of open petitions will be maintained as a public service. Signature totals will be updated daily as a general rule, and expired petitions will be removed every 10 days or so.
Every signature total you see below is linked to its petition's WhiteHouse.Gov page. Bear in mind that petitions expire after 30 days if they fail to cross 2 separate thresholds:
1. 150 - to become visible to visitors at the WhiteHouse.Gov petition site, and therefore here as well. Authors must prove the viability of their petitions by somehow acquiring this initial support on their own. And thus far, the vast majority have failed to make it.
2. 100,000 - to generate an official response from the Obama Administration. This second threshold was initially set at 5,000 when the site was launched, but was raised to 25,000 a week later after "more than 375,000 people" had already created accounts. And it was increased to its present level on January 15, 2013.

There are 2 lists of Open Petitions (All Petitions and Popular) provided at the White House petition site. Neither of them displays expiration dates, which makes it impossible to quickly determine how much time each petition has left to acquire 100,000 signatures. And because the commitment to answer all those that reach that threshold is the major attraction of this site, expiration dates are one of the first things we need to know.
Determining whether or not to sign a petition can take a lot of time after all, especially on issues we are unfamiliar with, so expiration dates are important factors in determining which petitions to focus on.
