Petition to allow Tesla to sell in all states-tracking progress

Petition to allow Tesla to sell in all states-tracking progress

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!

@jk2014 we definitely need 100K sigs I think they responded to some petitions with less because at the time the threshold for signatures was lower

#30 now!

ENGINEER | 27 juin 2013

Tehy used to only need 25k signatures, but they did raise it as the site got more popular.

jk2014 | 27 juin 2013

Gonna grow a petition mullet!

jonesxander | 27 juin 2013

@Engineer, not necessarily true, if you see other petitions on there some of them only have a 25k, or 10k signature goal. Maybe it's for lesser petition or something?

Just seemed a bit unfair

ENGINEER | 27 juin 2013

@jonesxander remember that the online platform is new. Maybe there are certain issues that allow for a lower signature minimum, but I feel that they had to raise it as more people registered to the site.

Now #29! Excellent!

Jamon | 27 juin 2013

I'm pretty sure all new petitions require 100,000 signatures. The requirements used to be lower, but they've been raising the bar as it has been too easy for random/joke topics to get enough signatures and the whitehouse was required to put effort into responding.

Think we can hit 33k by midnight!

Is this the official changing of the guard from jk2014 to Brian H for the night shift?

Brian H | 27 juin 2013

I think 32K is more likely by 12:00.

Almost 18,000 today.

lph | 27 juin 2013

I signed it at about #300. My wife signed a few minutes ago. Working on others too.
Looks like this may make it to 10k in time at this rate. Exciting!

lph | 27 juin 2013

Sorry, I ment 100k.

ENGINEER | 27 juin 2013

@Brian H 18,000 today? Spectacular...I remember when I signed it at 8,000 thinking it would never reach 100k in another week. at that rate it'll make it for sure.

Now #26!

Brian H | 28 juin 2013

In terms of current, "incomplete" petition drives, #2, behind the Ban Teaching Creationism (38,522).

RonaldA | 28 juin 2013

Even if 100k goal is not met I recommend cutting and pasting the result to emails to your own state and federal senators and reps.

OK, Elon Musk just twittered about the petition.
Let's get it rocketing sky high !!

Musk just tweeted to support the petition.

@AtlantaCourier that will seriously help out, he has twice the followers that the petition needs. I'm surprised that he and the Facebook page took so long to comment on it, since there's only less than a week left at this point.

martijn | 28 juin 2013

So, after his tweet, we got 500 votes in the first 15 min.

± 35,500 @ 11:00. Steady at 500 votes / 15 min.

AtlantaCourier | 28 juin 2013

End of Story. Sorry N.A.D.A. 100K by the end of the day! Obama to mandate Tesla and cancel ICE. You can't stuff Tesla back in the box any more than you could ban the Internet.

Only 3k till #1 most popular petition! Thanks for the support elon!

martijn | 28 juin 2013

We are truly thankful to Elon for finally supporting the efforts to support his own company.
Tesmaniacs we are.

@Atlanta he couldn't ban ICEs, the whole idea is that Tesla should be allowed to sell in all 50 states, but you CAN still buy a gas-powered car if you want. It's about competition, not monopoly, although I'll certainly opt for an expensive Tesla over the cheapest gas car any day.

Just 2 more spots until it's on the front page of "most popular," which it will easily overtake by this afternoon.

About 6200 so far today; if it follows yesterday's pattern, there's going to be a big surge late afternoon, early evening.
