Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

The notification bar asking to vote for so community moderator re-appears on every page refresh and I have voted already. I couldn't find any submit buttons, but is there some other action I need to perform besides selecting my first, second and third candidates?

This is probably due to technical reasons: The banner is shown regardless whether you have voted or not, so each user's "vote state" doesn't have to be determined on every request. Just ignore it, like a real-world advertisement that doesn't react to your already having voted – Pëkka Jan 30 '11 at 11:45
@Pekka - LOL, I was a bit concerned maybe the vote has not been registered because of browser incompatibility. Other than that I can tolerate a notification/advertisement which is as dumb as a real world one. – Majid Fouladpour Jan 30 '11 at 11:53
up vote 3 down vote accepted

Do you mean the system message?

system message

If so this gets displayed for as long as it's active - either for 48 hours or until a moderator removes it.

If you mean the notification that pops down then if you click the "X" and refresh the page then it won't get shown again.

Neither message "knows" whether you have voted or not.

Yes I mean the second one (notification). And as far as it's not an indication of your vote not having been received its not a big issue. The closing by clicking 'X' only is good for the current session though. – Majid Fouladpour Jan 30 '11 at 12:00
@Majid - If you refresh the page it should go away permanently. I've only ever seen it the once. – ChrisF Jan 30 '11 at 12:04
