Foursquare has partnered with Google, Rock the Vote, and the Pew Center to launch the Foursquare 'I Voted' campaign. This campaign is designed to get young people to the polls by letting them check-in and earn badges at over 107,000 polling stations.

The Foursquare 'I Voted' project does more than just hand out badges though. Users will be able to see how many people checked into polling stations anywhere in their neighborhood, state, or across the country. I'm not much for Foursquare, but I love anything that will get young people to the polls. #voteNov2nd. Stats for Social Media Voting Badges Trending: Older & Chilly
