I accidentally down voted an answer (fat fingers on a small phone) and didn't notice until after it was locked. How can I undo my down vote?

  • Does this help at all?

  • I was hoping for something more "actionable", but it does answer the question. Should I delete this question, since its nearly the same?

  • Well @slhck has provided an answer, and your question is probably worth keeping.

Votes can only be undone when the post is edited. If your vote really was accidental, you can resort to editing the post and then changing the vote.

However, try and make the edits substantial — especially if you don't have edit privileges yet, your edit might be rejected for being too minor. In case of doubt ask the OP in a comment to edit their own post or ask a user with 2k reputation to do the edit for you (e.g. through chat).

  • That worked well and resolved the problem.
