TIME announced this morning that they’ve partnered with foursquare to offer badges for attendees of this summer’s political conventions.
The Republican National Convention takes places August 27â€“30 in Tampa, while the Democratic National Convention will be held in Charlotte, September 3â€“5. This is easily the most advanced notice we’ve ever received for a foursquare badge.
TIME’s foursquare page will offer curated lists highlighting “must-attend venues and events, as well as convention tips from TIMEâ€™s expert political reporting team.” They’ll also be reporting the foursquare check-ins of newsmakers, reporters and VIPs as they check in around the conventions.
Until the conventions begin, foursquare users can check out TIME’s page for tips at places associated with some of their iconic magazine covers from the past, like this one they’ve left at Disneyland:
These badges should make a fun way for attendees to commemorate their trips to the conventions and participating in our political process.
