I just voted in the SO Moderator elections today (awesome!). However, I wasn't sure if my vote was registered, because there wasn't any alert. (I did receive a badge, but that was 10-15 minutes later.)

I think we should change the message from "0 votes remaining" to "You've used all your votes. Thanks for voting! Remember, you can come back and change your votes before the election ends"

There is clear feedback on the right-hand side, where your 3 choices are shown as you make them. Sorry, no screenshot as the vote is private until the end of the election. –  Martijn Pieters Jun 18 '12 at 13:13

There's "You are in the voting process" feedback and "Thanks for voting" feedback. Your example is the former to me. I'd prefer feedback that eliminates the guesswork. –  SomeKittens Jun 18 '12 at 13:14

I've changed your question to the format how feature requests are usually done on meta (you shouldn't take the "must be a question" thing too seriously here; the implied question is always "Do you agree with this feature request? Do you see alternatives, shortcomings, etc.?") –  balpha Jun 18 '12 at 13:47
    
Ok, thanks for taking the time to explain that to me. I really appreciate it! –  SomeKittens Jun 18 '12 at 13:48

@MartijnPieters actually the vote is still anonymous after that. –  Ben Brocka Jun 18 '12 at 14:19
    
@BenBrocka: Right, vote tallies vs. individual votes. The tallies will be opened after the election. –  Martijn Pieters Jun 18 '12 at 14:20

This is a good idea, and will be the case after the next build. Maybe a bit late for this particular election, but at least there for those to come.
