Serious question: is there any evidence that legislators care about
these petitions?  I thought I'd read that they are pretty much ignored,
and that only directly contacting your legislators in (hand)writing or
by telephone is considered to be taken seriously by them.  The problem
with them (as I understand it, and it seems logical enough to me) is
that they are too easy to participate in, and there's no way to verify
that the signatories are constituents, or even exist at all...
