I just cast my last vote of the day. But when I did, I received this message:

Daily vote limit reached; come back in 2 hours

Daily vote limit reached; come back in 2 hours

However, this was my last vote. I don't need to come back in 2 hours! The vote still stands.

The box should probably only appear if I cannot vote anymore, or the wording should be changed.

I think it's good that it is shown on your last vote. It's not saying "Come back in 2 hours to make this vote count", it's saying "Come back in 2 hours to start voting again". That way, you know you've used up your votes and how long you need to wait before you can vote again without needing to fail a vote.

If a wording change is needed, I think it would actually be in the first sentence. I'd suggest summat like the following, to hopefully illustrate more clearly that the limit was attained post-vote.

Daily vote limit now reached; come back in 2 hours.

Same here. This is by-design I think –  Pëkka Nov 24 '10 at 21:59

I'd upvote you for "Daily vote limit now reached", but I can't for obvious reasons :-) –  The Unhandled Exception Nov 24 '10 at 22:08
