Best Answer

The number of signatures needed to pass a petition will depend on what type of petition it is and how it was set up at the beginning. There is no specific number as to how many signatures are needed for a petition to pass.

Can citizens pass laws.... how many signatures are needed?

Citizens cannot pass laws merely by collecting signatures in any state I am aware of. There is a process in many states where citizens can petition to have a proposed law added to the ballot in the next election. Usually, this requires some percentage of voters to sign the petition - in a large state, this can be hundreds of thousands of voters. There are also usually procedural requirements, such as that the petition must be registered with a certain department, and the wording on the petition must be approved in advance. There may also be format requirements, and after the signatures are collected, the petition must be certified. When a petition does get through this process, it then goes on the ballot in the next election, and must receive a majority of "yes" votes in order to become a law.
