I signed yesterday and were up to 2400. I sent the link and a message to my friends and family, hopefully a few will sign it. I suggest all of us on the forum do the same!
@Andrew18: Can you please edit your original post to include the link to the petition? That way people who are reading on later pages can have easy access to the link. Thanks!

Tesla takes the #3 spot! Third most popular active WH petition in the country! Next stop #2!
16,600 @ 4:23pm pdt
#2 most popular active petition is stagnating around 26,100... Just 9.5k away!
@jk2014: where are you seeing the most popular active petitions? When I look at the website and click on "open petitions" > "popular", ours is listed as #46.
44 are not active anymore, time has run out to get 100k. I guess the WH leaves up the petitions for the year active or not...
So are you looking at the same list, and just clicking on each one to see whether it's still active? Impressive!
17,000 @ 6:27pm pdt
Tesla petition is currently outpacing all active petitions with sigs! Keep it up!
17,252 @ 7:17 pm PDT
Back up to almost exactly 5/min.
I note several with more sigs:
Ban teaching creationism
Pardon Snowdon (over the 100K target)
Obama to resign
Repeal the Patriot Act -- just passed this one by a dozen or so sigs.
Ban teaching creationism - 37,798
Obama resign - 26,055

@Brian...............Do you EVER sleep???

7.5k away from #2 most popular active petition. Keep the Sigs coming!
Forward to people who might sign, but don't read this forum too. And remember to have them forward.
I'm hoping that the Tesla gets in contact with Leo Laporte of The Tech Guy show on the weekend radio. I talked with Josh at Tesla Palo Alto and he said he has forwarded the info. If they can get Leo to talk about the petition he reaches millions on the weekend. Also the people he reaches are pro tech and motivated. I think the petition could get a big boost in numbers if this happens. At present pace don't think we'll reach 100,000 by July 5th. I'm running out of people to get to sign. Most of my friends have done so already.

This is the pace, keep it up everyone! News outlets, radio shows, etc... Are talking about a lot now. Great word of mouth and I'm assuming it came from many people on this forum!

Almost 15/minute! Picking up speed.
That was over the last 3+ hrs. In the last 20 minutes or so, it's >28/min.
Petitions was just picked up by ValueWalk… we're famous!
Nope, 22,093 at the moment (11:23 am PDT).
Correction, that was 10:23 am PDT. Currently 10:30 am PDT, 22,276
22,606 @10:42am pdt
Just 3.5k from #2 now! Out-effing-standing!
It will be important to plot the cumulative #s. So far it looks linear so may not make it. If it becomes exponential, no problem.
23,000 @ 11:06am pdt
Great press right now helping so much!
23,144 @11:08am pdt
Only 3k away from #2...
Approx. 4,000 sigs/hour right now! If we keep this up, could have over 73,000 sigs in total by midnight!!!! Keep em coming!!!
In 45 minutes, it climbed 992, to 23,268; that's 22/minute.

Take that NADA! I bet you didn't expect anyone to catch on to your sneaky tactics, but now you can watch democracy in action…
23,969 @ 11:36am pdt
Go to the open petitions page for more timely updates...
At this rate, making allowances for slower growth overnight, we should reach 100,000 in about 4 days.
24,244 @ 11:46am pdt
Only 1.8k from the #2 spot!!!
24,475 @ 11:56am pdt...
Whatever you guys are doing, it seems to be working. I actually learned about this petition because a couple news stories about it showed up this morning during the course of my normal web surfing.
I went and signed it, posted it to my facebook and told most everyone I know to go sign the petition.
Somebody should organize a caravan of Model S owners this weekend and make a lot of noise using the cars themselves to draw attention to the petition. Tell everyone to meet at a certain time at Hawthorne and start the trip caravan from there.
Yes: 25k @ 12:24 am
25,121 @ 12:36pm pdt
900 sigs from #2 spot!! Keep em coming, almost there!
