    turnout

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    The Human Rights League estimated a national turnout of 100,000, but police say the figure was closer to 30,000.

    turnout = the number of people gathered for a particular event or purpose; attendance

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
