Why Is This Important?

Public engagement in decision making is often considered a sign of a healthy democracy. High levels of political and civic participation increase the likelihood that the voices of ordinary citizens will be heard in important debates, and they confer a degree of legitimacy on democratic institutions.  Confidence in government is one of the most important foundations upon which the legitimacy and sustainability of political systems are built.
