18.945 more signatures are needed by December 18th to have President Obama address the American people on this issue.
As Active Politic reports, some people have had a problem with not being allowed to sign the petition. This is the White House website we’re talking about, so the problem is more likely to be due to incompetence than active censorship, but either way, not everyone is being allowed to have their voice heard.
Others have tweeted having issues with the site as well:
DiogenesCynic78: @St4rbuck_ @telecomix I had that problem with the last few I tried to sign. Managed to sign one for legalizing pot. Won’t let me sign more. -
Fortunately, 18,945 is not a lot for the internet to muster up, so sign it (if you can) and pass it on! Oh and the registration e-mail was slow to arrive for me, so have patience.
If you are unable to sign the petition, please confirm @telecomix #censorship.
