So, I here's my SO profile. I voted on 601 questions and 646 answers. Why don't I have the Electorate Badge?

  • How long ago was the 601th vote cast? The script which awards badges only runs periodically.

Badge grants are not immediate, you should see it when the job runs shortly.


But... you do have the badge.

I knew if I waited long enough I'd be right.

In any case, badges aren't always (ever?) awarded instantly. Sorry you had to wait so long.

    A 5 minute wait?! This is outrageous... I want my money back.
