As I'm looking now, they're identical - both showing 49.5/50.5.

I would expect that the bracket page updates less frequently than the voting page, to reduce database load. Nothing to worry about; when the vote closes it will show the most current tallies.

Thanks for reporting this. As Dab said, this was merely an issue of the bracket page not updating as frequently as the voting page. When we finalize individual rounds, everything is tallied up and displayed correctly in both locations.
