Must be a bug.

Bug behavior details: I had set the app to track "Vox Populi" progress, it didn't register "Suffrage" when I went past 30 votes and it got stuck at 35 vote count.

Using Chrome on original Windows 10 license running on MacBook Pro with Boot Camp, everything up to date.
Google Chrome is up to date Version 66.0.3359.139 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I don't actually care about badges, but is hard to not get carried away with gamification sometimes.

  • Badges that aren't that common aren't awarded immediately. There's a script than runs from time to time, and you'd be awarded "suffrage" in a while. As for being stuck in 35 votes, the way the system implements voting is 30 votes + 10 bonus on questions, and you haven't voted on enough questions. – M.A.R. May 7 '18 at 11:33

The thing about votes is that you don't necessarily always have 40 votes. To cite for example Daily vote limit reached on 37 votes:

There is a limit of 30 all-purpose votes per day and 10 question-only votes.

The tricky part is that you have to spend your questions-only votes first.

There are special votes that can only be used to upvote questions and these have to be used first if you want to have a total of 40 votes on any day.

It just so happens that today you have a maximum of 35 votes. If you want the badge you have to upvote questions first and then spend the rest on answers.

It also takes a while for badges to be awarded. There are different batches running that award badges. If you met the requirements for a badge and it still wasn't awarded after 24 hours or so it may be a bug, but everything up to that can be called "normal".
