The White House petition to ban “George Soros owned voting machines” reached well over the required 100,000 signatures to obtain a response from President Barack Obama.

The petition reached the signatures within six days of being published, far ahead of the November 20th deadline.

According to the official White House petition website, the petition is now in a “queue” that will be reviewed by the White House. “When the White House responds, everyone who has signed the petition will get email from the White House to let you know that we’ve reviewed and responded to the petition,” the website states.

The White House warns it won’t respond to petitions that violate the “terms of participation,” which include “Petitions that do not address the actions or policies of the federal government, or that address a topic not included in We the People at the time the petition was created.”

Since the petition doesn’t directly affect the federal government, but rather the 16 states that purchased the machines in question, the White House could use the provision to dodge the petition.

Lifezette the The Epoch Times tied Democratic billionaire George Soros to voting machines because the owner of the company that sells them sits under Soros on the board of the Open Societies Foundation.

Soros doesn’t have a controlling interest in the company that sold the machines, according to Business Insider. Additionally, none of the 16 states the purchased the voting machines plan to use them in November.
