I go into the Home tab and look over many different questions. On some, I vote but I have noticed a significant delay between voting and the vote registering in my Profile/Summary page.

For example, say I have 100 votes when I first login for the day. Then I go and vote say 5 times in 20 minutes. The votes do not show up in your profile for quite some time. It will remain at 100 votes for a significant amount of time before registering that you voted on questions or answers.

Has anyone else noticed this? Does it only register votes x times an hour? Is there a purpose for this?

To clarify, I have noticed this across multiple sites including both Stack Overflow and Meta Stack.

    My guess is that what is in that display box is not synced at each page refresh, it's a way to save db IO. As in your activity feed, in all action, votes, you see the vote in term of second appearing.
