This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

How long ago was the 601th vote cast? The script which awards badges only runs periodically. – Matt Jun 25 '13 at 16:36

Badge grants are not immediate, you should see it when the job runs shortly.

But... you do have the badge.

I knew if I waited long enough I'd be right.

In any case, badges aren't always (ever?) awarded instantly. Sorry you had to wait so long.
