I just logged into meta.J.SE and was promptly notified that I had received the "Vox Populi" badge. This seems impossible as I have only voted 9 times all week. Bug? user's vote count (From my meta.J.SE user page)

Edit: It seems quite extensive: None of these people have used 40 votes all week. list of those recently awarded the vox populi badge


We just deployed a change that affects the voting badges. This is why you see a number of these badges being awarded.

For more information about this change, you can see this answer.

Note that there is a bug with Vox Populi only that is awarding too many of them, beyond the expected more for retroactive awards, and a fix is being deployed now. The erroneous awards there will be cleaned up shortly.
