  • There's a delay of up to one hour. – Glorfindel Jan 17 at 13:54
  • It's updated hourly on per-sites Meta, less often on weekends and holidays (nah, kidding). Can't seem to find the dupe though... – Jenayah Jan 17 at 13:54
  • OK, never noticed that before... – GhostCat Jan 17 at 13:55

    Found it now, after searching for "synchronized hourly". – Glorfindel Jan 17 at 14:04

It's synchronized once per hour; see the Help Center.

Votes on meta do not affect your reputation; your meta reputation is the same as your reputation on Stack Overflow (synchronized hourly), though you earn separate badges. You must have 5 reputation to participate on meta.

(emphasis mine)

Note that there is currently a bug in the site switcher; that reputation is off by 6-8 weeks now. See Meta sites in "Your Communities" display different reputation
