No, to the contrary, although it isn't very far off ignoring the
irregular voting frequency, usually hopping based on call for votes. See
[1]. Note that this thread is very likely the cause for the current jump
in number of votes. Active campaigning for voting might help[2]!

See [3], [4] and [5] for older graphs of past votes this year.
Fortunately, it seems the last 2 days or so feature usually a 'just in
time to vote' race to the ballot box.
