Some people have asked, "How are votes counted? When does the voting end?"
So the answer to that is the voting never ends. It is always going and perpetual. But it's tallied each 2 minutes and 6 seconds. Why? So the reason is that we have 21 block producers, remember? And they each produce blocks for 6 seconds. 2 per second for a total of 12 blocks. 6 seconds plus 6 seconds... times 21. This is 126 seconds, so 2 minutes and 6 seconds. After the full schedule has run through, then we check for another tally. And we're taking that revised list and we say the "new schedule should look like this."
If it changes, it means that new producers should be producing blocks now. Their system needs to be ready. And they're going to be on the schedule to produce blocks. So it's a perpetual voting system, it never really stops. It's tallied each 2 minutes 6 seconds, hope that answers your question.
