Should we add a new badge (silver):

Regular voter: Voted at least once every week for 20 weeks in a row.

This helps make sure people vote regularly and is somewhat more powerful than the Civic Duty badge.

Once every week? How about once every ten minutes? Sounds way more realistic to me. –  innaM Nov 7 '09 at 9:34

Yes, but then people will ask for a Republican badge, which will lead to the inevitable Ron Paul badge...

At least it could be a change we can all believe in. –  random Nov 7 '09 at 10:21

And what about for those of us that aren't happy with any of them at the moment? We could call it the Congress badge if you only vote, but don't actually answer anyone's problems. –  AnonJr Nov 7 '09 at 12:46

Speaking of which, where is my Ron Paul badge? We need a badge for the purists here. –  George Stocker Nov 7 '09 at 19:02
    
Renamed suggestion to regular voter, which is a much better subject to votes. bring on the poo jokes. –  waffles Nov 7 '09 at 20:17

There's already a Republican badge... it's called "Critic". ;) –  gnostradamus Nov 7 '09 at 22:40
    
Ron Paul badge? Where can I get one? –  mmyers Nov 8 '09 at 0:22

Another vote related badge is set to come rolling out of the SO factory in the who knows when future:

Jeff Atwood
Plus, we already have Civic Duty, and another badge related to voting that I haven't rolled out yet.

I'm guessing it's coming in six to eight weeks? –  Ether Nov 7 '09 at 18:07

That badge should be reserved for users who log in and vote under multiple accounts on the same day.

Wouldn't that be the Chicago badge? It should also be awarded for any posthumous voting. –  David Thornley Nov 7 '09 at 15:40
    
I believe that badge would be called "Chadmaster" –  bananakata Nov 7 '09 at 17:43
