Views vs votes

I am confused about a couple aspects of the Challenges voting, which I see is a fairly hot topic here.

1) How can a picture get more votes than it has views? For example, in one Challenge the photo got 19 votes but only 4 views; in another Challenge, 14 votes but 6 views. Don't you have to view a photo in order to vote on it? (I could see where a photo got more views than votes because people were just looking at entries but not voting, or scrolling through all the images before deciding on particular ones.)

2) Is it true that a 0.5 vote is actually worse than not voting for a photo at all? If that's true, is not giving a star better than giving 1.0? Better than 1.5? etc.

Thanks!
