Voter turnout in the latest Afghanistan presidential election was roughly the same as the last US presidential election of about 60%.
In Afghanistan about 50 people were murdered while trying to vote. That would be about 500 on the US. Pretty much nobody gets murdered trying to vote in the US. Probably the most common cause of death in voting in the US is people crashing their cars.
Sad that Americans, in their apathy, can only muster the same voter turnout as a country where the voters are threatened by terrorist violence.
