I just visited that notstarted election of 2013 and got awarded the Caucus badge. The badge description says

Visited an election during any phase of an active election...

Is a notstarted election an active election? I don't think so.

Well, the election goes into the "nonstarted" phase a few days before nominations (basically this means that SE has entered the details for the election into the system). So you can't abuse this to get badges for elections that haven't yet happened, except for the ones which are about to happen.

I don't see why this needs any fixing, it's a trivial thing that causes no harm :/ Almost a pluralization bug :P

Well, as long as folks come back once it starts it's all good, but I don't see someone getting the badge and not returning to see who nominated, or perhaps nominate themselves. –  Tim Post Feb 22 '13 at 13:42
