# Can't have the “Vox Populi” badge

It's happened twice already (On MartialArts.SE the first time though).

I used all my votes allowance for the day, but the badge tracker indicates me I voted 38 times (Which might be true, I don't keep a count :p). The Vox Populi badge asks for 40 votes.

What can I do to receive the badge if I used my full allowance?

The daily vote limit is a little arcane. From this post on Meta.SE:

• The exact number of votes available depends on your voting behavior for the day. Concretely, there are three upper limits to respect at the same time to be able to vote.
• 40 post votes per day per user.
• 5 post votes after you got your first "5 votes remaining" warning of the day. If you reach 25 answer votes at time t of the day, given q(t) as the number of question votes cast by time t, the total post votes limit will be no more than 30 + q(t). If you cast less than 25 answer votes, ignore this point.
