The same IP address can vote once per day per nominee, with a 24-hour reset (i.e., each 24 hour-period you may vote once for each of the nominees). You may vote for as many nominees as you like in a 24-hour period. But you cannot cast multiple votes for the SAME nominee in any given 24-hour period.
