This is the argument you present for why people should sign and why the target should act. Immediately say what needs changing and what the petition will do about it. Is there any addidional information they should know about? This is the place!

Be specific in what you ask for, a good goal is quantifiable, clear and concrete. There are often different solutions to the same problem, so evaluate carefully which one will be most effective and has the biggest chance of succeeding.

The target is who you are directing your petition to. Choosing the right target can make the difference between winning and losing. You want your target to be an individual, a real person. You do not want to direct your petition to the whole council, but rather a specific council member who has the power to sign or evoke a certain bill. When aiming at a large institution or someone too high up you will have a high chance of the petition being set aside and barely noticed.

Petitioning in public places with a clipboard is also possible but has the disadvantage that the data still needs to be uploaded to a computer and this is a tedious, error prone task.
