Citizens will soon be able to submit online petitions directly to the White House website, it was announced Thursday.

Macon Phillips, White House Director of Digital Strategy, said citizens can be informed via e-mail when the site, “We the People,” goes live.

Individuals will be able to create or sign a petition that calls for action from the federal government. If the petition gathers enough signatures, a standing group of White House staff will review the petition and pass it along to other appropriate offices.

“Initially, petitions that gather more than 5,000 signatures in 30 days will be reviewed and answered,” Phillips said.

Petitions with 5,000 signatures will also generate an official, on-the-record response, Phillips said.
