Caucus is a badge that can be awarded multiple times for visiting "an election during any phase of an active election and have enough reputation to cast a vote." Who wrote the description likely meant "active" as in "that isn't ended yet", but the badge can be awarded also for elections that aren't started yet.

I just visited Ask Ubuntu's upcoming election and sure enough I gained the Caucus badge, though the election is showing in the notstarted phase. –  Michael Hampton Feb 4 '13 at 1:12

A few of you received this badge early but it will not happen after the next build. If you got your badge early hopefully you'll be a good citizen and vote anyway when the time comes.

@mikeTheLiar It's how they can justify pretending that anything we say has any bearing on reality on Stack Exchange! Conspiracy! –  Lightness Races in Orbit Feb 26 '13 at 12:28
