Non-participation is the absence of citizens from the political process.

The central measure of non-participation is concerned with those registered to vote who choose not to, which is measured by ‘turnout’

However, other forms of non-participation reflect the alternative opportunities to participate in the politics, which can include membership of political parties and membership of pressure groups.
