[liberationtech] Who shouts the loudest (in government e-petitions)?

From: Rodrigo Davies <rodrigo.davies at>

I'm collecting data on the thresholds used in government-operated
petition websites to generate official action. I'm hoping to analyse
how these thresholds stack up as a share of population, how the
actions generated differ, among other things. I think it could make a
great dataset to visualize and play with.

Does anyone have a list of government petition sites worldwide,
complete or otherwise, or any other data that might be useful? I'd
appreciate any leads / tangents.

Or, if someone else has already done this exact project and I've
missed their wonderful effort, I'd love to know that too.
