How can I set up Auto Fill on Petitions? I would like to sign many of them, so is there a way
to set up autofill so I don't need to repetitively fill these in each time/

    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    It's an interesting question, and I can see why you would ask it. On one level, you need to set up your browser to use the autofill feature. But it's also true that you'd need our forms to be able to accept it.

    Have you checked out your browser settings? For many of our petitions, the ones that request only a signature or some basic information, the app is already designed to recognize your account via cookies. So that permits some autofilling right there.

    As for the longer ones, the letters that go directly to your legislator(s), that's a more complicated issue. Each legislator has different forms, and I'm not sure what they, at the effective destination, would permit. I rather doubt that they'd want to permit autofills on their end, even if it would be more convenient for the constituents.

    Hope that answers your question. We appreciate your support of the site's mission.
