If you read my profile, and see my activity, I am trying to earn the "Electorate" badge. I have 329 votes cast and only 324 are recorded, but this isn't a bug! I just want to know what the "25%" of it means, because of the fact that only 324 votes are recorded.

I tried to figure it out, so I hovered my mouse onto the badge des, and it says, 98% out of 25% on questions. Is this good or bad? What does the "25%" mean?

    Is the description you linked to, "Vote on 600 questions and 25% or more of total votes are on questions", not sufficient? Commented Mar 19, 2021 at 17:10

You've cast 329 up-/downvotes, as shown in this widget:

but for the Electorate badge only votes on questions count, and you only have 324 of those.

The 25% rule is comparing your votes on questions (324) to your total votes (329), so you have a percentage of 324/329 = 98%.
