Sorry for the long Subject :)

There are certain badges such as Mortarboard, suffrage which are obtained by accomplishing something in a single day. For example, suffrage is obtained by up voting 30 posts a day.

My query is, what time range is covered in a day.

Is it GMT, UTC, or something else?

Or is it based on activities within last 24 hours and given whenever ever the user crosses a particular threshold. For example, I up voted a post now and have done this 29 more times within last 24 hours, hence I will get suffrage badge?

SO uses UTC.

00:00 UTC -> 23:59 UTC is one day.

You can see the UTC timestamp of any post by hovering over the relative times.
