It might be no surprise that 2020 saw more Duluth action on change.org than any year before it. And it’s hardly surprising that the petition with the most virtual signatures is a plea for Duluthians to wear masks.
Of course, support on a website doesn’t equal action, and the vast majority of the petitions this year failed to accomplish the requested result. But hey, that’s how 2020 goes. The petition with the most signatures, however, was successful. On July 13 the Duluth City Council unanimously passed an ordinance requiring the use of masks in most indoor public places.
The year isn’t over yet, but 15 different Duluth-related petitions have exceeded 300 signatures. The previous record is six Duluth petitions exceeding 300 signatures in 2017.
Below is a breakdown of the past year’s petitions, from the somewhat strongly supported down to the 300 mark. The numbers represent supporters as of the morning of Dec. 14.
