Percent of eligible voters who voted in the last city election
Increase participation of eligible voters to 80%
Generally, we see average turnout during City Election years with greater turnout in Federal Midterm Election years such as last year, and the highest turnout during Presidential Election years like three years ago.
If we compare our two City Election years (two years ago and this year) then we have seen some improvement from one year to the other, but we still lag behind our target.
Engagement is very important to the success in a city so we should track the percent of those who vote in the city elections. This is a good indicator of those who are involved in the city overall.
