I'm always happy to earn a new badge, but I don't understand why this one was awarded to me 2 days ago.
The qualification for earning it is:
Visited an election during any phase of an active election. This badge can be awarded multiple times.
But the election it points to is the 2011 Election that ended Jun 15 '11 at 20:00. Plus, there does not appear to be any newer elections (nor did I actually visit any DYI election two days ago). I may have visited the Election back in 2011, but I could not say one way or the other.
