I noticed that a question where I had cast a reopen vote now is listed as having no reopen votes. Do reopen votes disappear under certain circumstances or expire? Do close votes also do the same?


Yes. As stated here, both reopen and close votes expire after a certain period of time:

  • For a question with less than 100 views, they expire one per day after 14 days.
  • Otherwise they expire once per day, starting 4 days after the last vote was cast.

    $\begingroup$ @Dale Note that you can only cast one successful reopen vote per thread. If your reopen vote ages away, if I understand the system correctly, you can re-cast that vote. $\endgroup$ Jan 9 '20 at 21:00
