I'm willing to put up a bounty to any user on here to earn the Electorate Badge and Civic Duty until end of Mai of 2016. This is basicly the most easy-to-get gold badge available on stack exchange and currently only eth and myself hold one. Let's change this. The rules are simple and there are only two:

  • Earn the Electorate Badge badge during the months of April or Mai 2016
  • Earn the Civic Duty badge during the month of Mai 2016
  • Have at least one answer on any question (needed to award the points*)

I am willing to put up 50xp of my points to anyone who makes the grade. You don't even have to acknowledge you are shooting for this, just show up and vote**. You can keep track of how many votes you've cast by looking at the bottom of your user page under the activity tab:

This is the number you're looking at and it needs to equal 600. When you upvote a question this number will increase.

So basically how do you get it? Upvote questions and it's all yours. Let's get out the vote!! :D

*NOTE 1: Please make sure your answer I award on is a good one, if you only have a crap answer, I'll hold the points until you have a good one worthy of the points :-)

*NOTE 2: Down-votes also count, this is no challenge to randomly push bad content. Make your votes count where they fit best. Maybe start reviewing content here.

Update 1: Also Civic Duty is up for a reward now.

Thanks zanzu, Nicolas Massart and tayvano for making the Civic Duty badge in the last minute. ;-)

No Electorate badge was claimed. Next time I will announce a longer time frame. :-)
