ACT Legislative Assembly

Welcome to the ACT Legislative Assembly Petitions website

Petitioning is one of the traditional methods by which members of the public can make formal requests direct to Parliament. A petition is a formal document containing a list of signatures from ACT citizens/residents to Members of the Legislative Assembly seeking the redress of a grievance. Any citizen or group of citizens of the ACT can submit a petition asking for an action to be taken by the Assembly. A petition must address an issue that is related to the jurisdiction of the ACT Assembly and not that of another State or Territory parliament or the Federal Parliament.

From this website you can locate e-Petitions, find out information about the status of e-Petitions, find out if it is a current e-Petition and join an e-Petition. The website also provides information to assist you with starting an e-Petition including an information brochure, e-Petition request form and contact details for all Members of the ACT Legislative Assembly.
