I'm not sure if everyone knows about this (I didn't know about it until Tesla posted about it on the Facebook page) but there is a petition on We The People that is calling for Tesla to be able to sell directly to consumers in all 50 states.
I know there is a tracking thread under the Model S forum, but I have something different to add in mind.
As of this moment, over 30,000 people have signed the petition online, over the 22 days the petition has been open. That's a little unsettling, given that there are only about 7 days left to gain 70,000 more signatures if the petition is to be addressed by the Administration.
This being said, I was the 8,280th person to sign the petition, 3 days ago. The petition only had 8,000 signatures in 19 days, yet in the last three nearly triple that number added to the count. The rate at which the petition is gaining signatures is growing exponentially, and given the current trend, the petition can surely meet the required 100,000 signatures by July 5th.
This idea is probably already common or contemplated knowledge, so I'll also say this: If you haven't signed the petition on whitehouse.gov yet, SIGN IT, the link is above. Then, share it on your Facebook count multiple times over the next crucial week, or over any other social media like Twitter or emails. It is so crucial that we as Tesla followers continue to share this petition with as many people as possible, even ask them to continue to share the existence of the petition as well.
After that, I guess there's nothing else to do but watch.
