In trying to fill in the fields to send a letter the only fields I can complete are my phone number. Entrys to Prefix or Letter Topic are not being accepted. Therefore I can not complete your form to protest Kavanaugh's nomination

    Yes, the field buttons do not work for prefixes and topics. Petition un-signable.

    Hello, and thanks for your inquiry. We have ticketed the issue and developers are working on fixing it.

    Meanwhile, if there is a petition you want to sign, but you find yourself stymied by the uncooperating Letter Topic dropdown (which does not offer any options and therefore blocks your submission of the letter) please try one or the other of these two workarounds.

    (The second workaround is also relevant to any other problem with fields that will not accept your information.)

    Workaround #1: When you reach the page where the Letter Topic dropdown seems to be stuck/non-functional, slide your cursor up a little so that it points at the gray space above it. The dropdown should appear then.

    Workaround #2: Click on the petition title -- that is, the heading of the embed. That will redirect you to the petition page right away, and in that context there should be no misalignment for the dropdown.

    We apologize for the awkwardness and frustration this problem has caused.

    Thanks for the awesome tips, AND for all the great work you do everyday. I wish I had funds (disabled senior and Trump target), but I sign all petitions!

    Very best wishes, I miss the Bay Area. Does a woman named Bev still work there?
    Thanks again,
