V22 post-release diagnosis updates: Election Confirmations

17th May: We are looking into why elections are not confirming as fast as expected, please be patient while we continue diagnostics. Canary block will make no difference to the current election confirmation speed.

Today: The primary factor we are seeing in our investigation is an unusually high number of vote requests being dropped, greater than 90% due to sequential confirmation. We are looking at both rate limiting & more conservatively making vote requests to solve the situation.
