Foursquare offers "I Voted" badge on Election Day


Foursquare has worked with NASA, now it is tackling the elections. Forget wearing a sticker to show off your voting prowess, now you can check in to the site and get the official "I Voted" badge. Including the text #ivoted in their polling station check-in will unlock the badge.

The bigger idea is to collect data about the volume, time of day and gender that each polling location is experiencing. An interactive map of check-ins will also be available for embed on any website.

You'll see a lot more on a special website that goes live on November 2 at elections.foursquare.com.
