A petition drive is the method you use to collect your signatures. This can be a useful tactic to influence others to implement, change or cancel a regulation or action.

Pedro’s campaign for Class President
The legendary movie Napoleon Dynamite debuted in 2004, presenting us with the adventures of Napoleon Dynamite and his friend Pedro Sanchez, both of whom are socially awkward teenagers. The plot involves the two teens doing a massive campaign project before school, in order to get Pedro elected as class president. The protagonist and his companion are shown in a montage, putting flyers everywhere in school, as well as giving out armbands to students, accompanied with the line; “Vote for Pedro.”
