I just got four Caucus and one Constituent badge.

I think all I did was click on the Moderator Elections link from here on Meta.

I just got the two caucus badges merely for going to :/ I didn't click any pages nor knew about the elections. – Mooing Duck Jun 8 '12 at 23:33
@MooingDuck that's probably because you participated at the last elections, to prove this theory go to the notification and see if the link ends with .../election/2 – ajax333221 Jun 9 '12 at 0:32
@ajax333221 Seems you are correct. I got 2 caucus and a Constituent for the last election as well. Fun. – chown Jun 9 '12 at 1:02

The four Caucus badges is a bug - should've been two. Two of them are now gone.

The Constituent badge would've been for the last election.

On the notification box, if you hover on the election links, you should be able to see from which election it was awarded (e.g

You've earned the "Caucus" badge for an election. See your profile.

You've earned the "Caucus" badge for an election. See your profile.

If the links are all from different elections, there is no bug.
