On the Area51 site, there's a Civic Duty badge, which has the same requirement of 300 votes as on the other SE sites. Some people (46 as of today) have event been awarded it, so it does exist!

However, I can't seem to find out how many times I've voted to know how close I'm doing. My profile info doesn't show the voting counts, only voting on questions I've proposed. I can track Not A Good Example via the reputation tab (they show up as a red zero, I think a recent change), but the rest don't show anywhere.

As I understand it, the usual answer in the case of "How close am I to this badge" is to perform a query against the data explorer once a month. Unfortunately, Area51 isn't available on the data explorer, and I've just been told that this can't be changed any time soon due to schema differences.

So, in the absence of a data explorer, any chance there could be a new feature to allow a user to track their Area51 voting?

Note - this doesn't related to the Area 51 Discussion site. While that does show vote counts, it has it's own set of badges, and the award list for the two sites is different

The Area 51 user page now shows the number of votes cast:

I'm pretty sure that the badge is awarded based on your discussion zone profile. At least, that's where the badges and the "Votes Cast" statistics are displayed.

To get to it from your Area 51 profile, click the "discussion user" link underneath your gravatar:

Pretty sure it can't be - there is a Civic Duty badge on both the main and discussions sites, and they have different award counts: discuss.area51.stackexchange.com/badges/18/civic-duty vs area51.stackexchange.com/badges/32/civic-duty –  Gagravarr May 29 '11 at 16:28
    
@Gagravarr: Oh, I see. Then the Civic Duty badge for the main site comes from voting on example questions. Either as a "great on-topic example" or a "great off-topic example". –  Cody Gray May 30 '11 at 5:32
    
Yup, and that's not something you can track, hence the request :) –  Gagravarr May 30 '11 at 11:02
