How can I get the “Electorate” badge?

I have seen an Electorate badge which is awarded on voting 600 times. as per document saysVoted on 600 questions and 25% or more of total votes are on questions. I have cast 606 votes in which 227 are on question and else are on answers. I have downvoted 4 times. But I am not awarded this badge. Any one have an idea?

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.


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

So there are two requirements for this badge that must both be met:

  1. You must have at least 600 votes on questions.
  2. At least 25% of your total votes must be cast on questions.


  • 500 Question and 200 Answer votes, No badge, you need 100 or more question votes more.
  • 600 Question and 2000 Answer votes, No badge, 600/2600 < 1/4, you need at least 67 votes on questions more.
  • 600 Question and 1400 Answer votes, Electorate, you get the badge.

According to your profile you have 606 total votes, not necessarily over 600 votes on questions. So please have a little more patience.

    @Awais: You don't meet the requirements. You haven't voted on 600 questions. You've only voted on 227 questions. Check the "by type" column. – Cody Gray May 24 '11 at 14:22

    @Awais Qarni, there are two requirements for the badge, your percentage is good. But you need at least 600 votes on questions alone. Now you have 227 on questions so you still need 373. – Toon Krijthe May 24 '11 at 14:23
  • @Gamecat... Now I have understood. Thanks..... – Awais Qarni May 24 '11 at 19:13
  • @CodyGray: how can one see the total count or ratio between up down votes? – noobie-php Apr 24 '14 at 19:33

    Could you, for example, have 600 Question votes and 0 Answer votes? – Fizzix May 29 '14 at 2:41
