What does this indicator measure?

Turnout is the percent of registered voters who actually voted in the general election (which includes voted for the U.S. president)

Why is this indicator important?

Improved levels of social and physical health are associated with communities that engage in voting and civic participation. Communities that vote are better represented in government, reaping benefits such as greater social capital, less crime, more connectiveness, better health, and better services.
