I just got four Caucus and one Constituent badge.

I think all I did was click on the Moderator Elections link from here on Meta.

    I just got the two caucus badges merely for going to stackoverflow.com :/ I didn't click any pages nor knew about the elections. Jun 8, 2012 at 23:33

    @MooingDuck that's probably because you participated at the last elections, to prove this theory go to the notification and see if the link ends with .../election/2

The four Caucus badges is a bug - should've been two. Two of them are now gone.

The Constituent badge would've been for the last election.

    Hmm, I think I like getting grandfathered into new badges. Nice.

On the notification box, if you hover on the election links, you should be able to see from which election it was awarded (e.g https://stackoverflow.com/election/2)

You've earned the "Caucus" badge for an election. See your profile.

If the links are all from different elections, there is no bug.
