I've just gotten started with BattleScape. Looking forward to enjoying the content but I am having trouble completing my guide book challenges and acquiring items which require vote points.

I have cast votes via both portals using MS Edge, and the BattleScape website shows that I have voted a total of 2 times, but when I try to claim the points via the poll booth I get the message "Checking for votes..."... and that's it. Nothing. No points are added. I've tried leaving it for 5 minutes, logging out, closing my client, restarting my computer.

Is this system currently bugged/broken or am I going wrong somewhere?
