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

Wouldn't this read better if it said:

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

Instead of:

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

No, as this would change the meaning. The badge requires 600 votes on questions, your suggestion requires 600 votes on anything.


From here:

Electorate

  • gold; awarded once; same family as Civic Duty (silver)
  • Vote on 600 questions, and have at least 25% of the total number of votes cast be votes on questions
    • Comment votes do not count

This seems to be an especially confusing badge, so here are some examples to address cases commonly complained about on MSO. Total is just the total number of votes cast (Questions + Answers) and Ratio is the total number of votes cast that are on questions.

┌───────────┬─────────┬───────┬───────┬─────────────────────┐  
│ Questions │ Answers │ Total │ Ratio │ Electorate awarded? │  
├───────────┼─────────┼───────┼───────┼─────────────────────┤  
│       600 │    2400 │  3000 │   20% │   No; ratio too low │  
│       201 │     401 │   602 │  ~33% │ No; < 600 questions │  
│       599 │       0 │   599 │  100% │ No; < 600 questions │  
│       600 │       0 │   600 │  100% │                 Yes │  
│       500 │     500 │  1000 │   50% │ No; < 600 questions │  
│       650 │     650 │  1300 │   50% │                 Yes │

  • Ah, I was deciphering the meaning from the wrong direction. Thanks for clarifying. – Enigma Feb 25 '13 at 20:03
