What is this Indicator?

Why this is important: 
Voter registration is a strong indication of civic engagement. Citizens who are registered to vote tend to be more informed and actively participate in the community. Voting ensures that all citizens have the opportunity to voice their opinions on issues such as the use of tax dollars, civil rights and foreign policy.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 24 Maryland counties and county equivalents.
Population estimates are from the U.S. Census Bureau.
