How does someone get to cast more than 40 votes in a day?

I have found this question but couldn't find any answers for this question.

This is my profile.

In the votes casted for the day section the value is 41. In the badges description I could find

Vox Populi: Used the maximum 40 votes in a day.(it says the maximum votes that a user can use will be 40. is it?)

How could I vote 41 times if the limit is 40 for a day?

Also voting 40 times Vox Populi badge should be awarded. Now see my badges. I don't have it either.


Is this an error or am I wrong somewhere?

UPDATE: Now I have been awarded the Vox Populi badge. But it was delayed for 1 hour.

    The badge is awarded at the end of the day (in 11 hours time). No idea how you've managed to vote 41 times though – ChrisF Mar 29 '12 at 10:54
  • Yep, the badges are awarded by a script that runs sort of randomly. Some of the badge scripts run more often.. – Manishearth Mar 29 '12 at 10:55

  • @ChrisF I don't think it's awarded end of day... – Sathyajith Bhat Mar 29 '12 at 11:19
  • @Sathya - apparently not, but it is delayed in case you revoke your vote (I've just realised) – ChrisF Mar 29 '12 at 11:20
