53% of eligible voters turned out to vote in the USA in 2012. But less than 38% voted in the last mid-term elections.
I'm in Montreal this week. 21% of eligible voters turned out for the English School Board elections - 4% for the French School Board. And it was a really important election about the future of education in the province. It should matter.
In India last spring, 66% turned out to vote - 65% in Ladakh. It's our voice. It matters.
Cynthia will be blogging as she works with our Himalayan projects this year.
