Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is this restricted to 1k users? Or can anyone split the vote counts in the primary election?

Shoot, all my sockpuppets have over 1k. You'll have to find someone else... – Adam Davis Jan 26 '11 at 3:58
@Polly, maybe I should make a few sockpuppets and situate them at strategic rep levels to test this stuff. – jjnguy Jan 26 '11 at 3:59
@Justin - I've considered that, but it sounds too much like work. – Adam Davis Jan 26 '11 at 4:11
@Polly, that would be work. – jjnguy Jan 26 '11 at 4:13
It wouldn't take too long using bounty. Come to think of it, you could even give the rep back after. @Polly – Jon Seigel Jan 26 '11 at 4:29
My SO rep is under 1K. I consistently get "An error occurred while fetching vote counts." on the candidates. On normal questions and answers, the cursor does not even change, and nothing happens when I click the vote number. – John Jan 26 '11 at 4:32
@Justin I've tried, but they keep getting endless upvotes. Something about my spectacular answers, I guess – Michael Mrozek Jan 26 '11 at 5:07
You say "election" but do you mean "primary"? SF is on the real election and I see no vote counts. – Mark Henderson Jan 26 '11 at 5:14
@Michael, yeah. That would be a difficult problem to deal with. – jjnguy Jan 26 '11 at 5:15
@Far, yup. Fixed, thanks. – jjnguy Jan 26 '11 at 5:16

up vote 8 down vote accepted

Vote counts for the primary election will be visible for all who have enough reputation to vote after the next deploy.

This seems to be broken again (“An error occurred during vote count fetch”): I can see the splits on SO, SU, AU (all +0/-0 since there was no primary) but not Programmers or English. This is consistent with a 1k rep threshold. – Gilles Aug 13 '11 at 15:24
Confirming the breakage. I can't see the splits for Gaming but I can for SO and English. – mmyers Aug 17 '11 at 20:52
Still broken. – Matthew Read Nov 16 '11 at 16:57
Still broken for myself as well, and I have 150+ rep on SO. – studiohack Nov 16 '11 at 17:33
You must be an established user: – Geoff Dalgas Nov 16 '11 at 20:21
@GeoffDalgas That directly contradicts your answer. Is it intended to be voters (150+ rep) or established users (1000+ rep) who can see the vote breakdowns in elections? – Matthew Read Jan 30 '12 at 18:46
@GeoffDalgas So which of these is the actual limit? FWIW, I can click on the number, but it returns an error. – HodofHod Jun 11 '12 at 23:40
Confirmed that it is broken for voters (150+ rep) on SO. – James Jun 11 '12 at 23:54

A less than 1k reputation account is getting "An error occurred while fetching vote counts." when trying to click on the reputation.

However, the page says that:

There is no commenting in this phase, only one up or down vote per candidate. The candidate vote scores are all public. Initial voting should provide a rough sense of which candidates are most electable.

So, maybe it's made public but the callback function is not updated and <1k users are not getting it right now.

I have < 1k on SO and I'm not seeing any vote counts at all.
