Petitions tend to be highly specific. As such, most templates are relatively generic, allowing the user to fill in information on the purpose of the petition. Many of the templates are designed to be sent to a government body.
Some of the petitions ask for detailed information such as the voter registration number of the signer. Others only have space for the name, address and signature of the signer.
One of the petitions on SampleTemplates.com is addressed to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. It features relatively formal language and may be preferable for petitioning more authoritative organizations such as state legislatures. Another petition is much more informal with a box for describing the purpose of the petition and space for names, signatures, phone numbers and emails.
Two of the three templates available on TidyForm.com are available as Microsoft Word template files. These are easy to edit while maintaining the design of the petition.Learn more about Business Communications
