Fewer than 15 petitions were actively collecting signatures on the White House's We the People website Jan 10, among the lowest numbers since the site's September 2011 launch.
About 40 other petitions were still posted to the experiment in digital democracy Jan 10, although they already had gathered enough signatures to receive an official White House response. All but five of those petitions date back more than three months to when the threshold for a response was raised from 5,000 to 25,000 signatures.
