These stats about literacy and voter turnout from South Asia give an insight whether literacy is linked to higher voter turn out. This is interesting to see keeping in view General Elections to be held in Pakistan in 2018.
It is interesting to note that Bhutan though has lower literacy rate than Pakistan but has a higher voter turnout than Pakistan. On the other hand, though Bangladesh has higher literacy rate than the two countries but it has lower voter turn out that Pakistan and Bhutan.
