We the People is a platform on the White House website that allows users to create and sign petitions on any number of issues. Petitions that recieve more that 150 signatures get reviewed by the White House staff and are responded to. The platform has supported over 8 million users, more than 200,000 petitions and more than 13 million signatures.
The API provides users with read-only access to data on all petitions that have gathered enough support to have received a response and become publicly-available on the We the People site. Future plans include a write API that will allow developers to integrate into their own systems and collect and submit signatures.
There are no mashups, developers or code associated with this API yet.
