Electorate badge rules?

On StackOverflow, I've got 605 votes, 264 for questions, and 341 for answers.

Doesn't this mean I should have the 'Electorate' badge?

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.

Why the down-vote? Simple misread, and had my question answered. – Curt Jul 25 '11 at 8:34
Downvotes here on Meta mean something different than they do on the main site. Executive summary is not to take them too personally. :-) – Cody Gray Jul 25 '11 at 8:40
"voting is used to express agreement or disagreement, not to point out a lack of quality or helpfulness" I see :) – Curt Jul 25 '11 at 8:43
up vote 4 down vote accepted

No, here is the badge's description (with my emphasis):

Voted on 600 questions and 25% or more of total votes are on questions

You've only voted on 264 questions, so you fail to meet the highlighted criteria.

A detailed breakdown of your voting history is available in your user profile:

605 Votes Cast / 264 on questions / 341 on answers

duhh sorry! Should've read more carefully. – Curt Jul 25 '11 at 8:28
Assessing your eligibility for this badge has been made really easy by the way we now break down voting information in the user profile. @Curt Remember that upvotes and downvotes both count, and that downvotes on questions are even free. So feel free to vote down the questions that you think show little research effort, are poorly constructed, or are not a good fit for the site. – Cody Gray Jul 25 '11 at 8:30
