Can I see how many votes a nominee has?

Vote counts will not be publicly displayed.

Nominees that receive 75 votes will get a special badge on their profile, to indicate that they will pass to the jury scoring round. Badges will be displayed while voting is still open. Some may be displayed after voting closes. All who receive a badge will also receive an email notification.

I received 75 votes and got a badge on my profile. Why did my "Vote" button disappear?

How many nominees can I vote for?
