Two votes but one view?

Views are not written to the database instantly. Views on the site are buffered and then written to the database once a site threshold is reached.

I can't find a text reference, but I heard Jeff Atwood explain on the podcast a couple of weeks ago that the SE engine counts views very conservatively, to avoid multi-counting individuals. If you want to know how many times a page was actually read, it's pretty safe to mentally double the nominal view count.
