Is my local time considered in daily rep cap, or numbers of votes?

As Kop has said, the rep cap (etc) is based on UTC. However, your comments suggest you think you're in CET - but no countries are currently observing CET. Central Europe is generally observing CEST, which is UTC+2.

You haven't specified your location, but assuming you live somewhere which is CET in winter, and you've recently gone onto summer time by advancing your clock by 1 hour, you're now in UTC+2. That means the "rep day" starts at your local 2am.

Oh dear - somebody asked a "timezone" question with Jon in the room. This could take a while... ;-p (said in jest, people) – Marc Gravell Apr 11 '10 at 22:13

We live in UTC land.

Unicorn Coordinated Time. Even unicorns need a bit of coordination from time to time. – Pëkka Apr 11 '10 at 22:33
