I suppose you're expecting to earn the Enthusiast badge? Do you meet all the requirements? –  Cody Gray Feb 28 '12 at 6:22

Did you visit on consecutive days? –  simchona Feb 28 '12 at 6:26
    
You do realize that you only gain the badge for 30 days in a row and not just for 30 days with gaps between them –  Orchestrator Feb 28 '12 at 6:27

Re your current edit: You only just "today" have reached the required voting totals. You need to wait for the proper update cycle. Give it a day; you'll have it. It's not instant. –  Andrew Barber Mar 25 '12 at 4:30

I believe the 24-hour periods which count as days here are based on either GMT or UTC. Also, just to make sure, you did see the badge specifies 30 consecutive days? So every day for 30 continuous days you visited the Stack Overflow site (and logged in)?

EDIT: As for the Electorate badge, please read the badge descriptions carefully.

Voted on 600 questions and 25% or more of total votes are on questions

You've only voted on about 350 questions so far.

It should award at the end of the 30th day I would say. Wait until tomorrow. –  darvids0n Feb 28 '12 at 6:41
    
okay but for number of votes? it was 600 a day before yesterday. –  Akram Feb 28 '12 at 6:43
    
Nope its not true.The 30th day visit must gain you the badge –  Shahzad Imam Feb 28 '12 at 6:44

As others have said, just be patient with Enthusiast. I had the same issue, and eventually it was awarded.

Electorate can be a hard one to understand. Basically you qualify if you have voted on (at least) 600 questions and your total number of votes is 2400 or less.

@Byce: thanks buddy. –  Akram Feb 28 '12 at 13:44

This particular badge usually takes up to 3 hours past midnight UTC to actually be awarded.

Have patience, young grasshopper unicorn.

For example:
Here on Meta, my Enthusiast badge was awarded at 01:15:25Z.
Over on Gaming.SE, my Enthusiast Badge was awarded at 02:52:29Z.

Exactly - this badge has a 10% chance to run each grant cycle, so it's unlikely it'll be awarded right at UTC midnight. –  Jarrod Dixon Feb 28 '12 at 7:06
    
@Akki: You need to have voted on 600 questions for Electorate. You've voted on 349... –  animuson Feb 28 '12 at 7:19

@Akki: No, 600 questions, and 25% or more of your total votes are on questions. –  animuson Feb 28 '12 at 7:24

This is probably a nightly process like a couple other badges. I would wait until tomorrow.
