    $\begingroup$ Are you sure it is a problem with the site? Can you reproduce the behavior? Are you certain no-one else voted in the meantime? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Did you click the upvote button again or did you click the downvote button? You should click the upvote button again. $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2013 at 4:48
  • $\begingroup$ I think you should add support to the question, and perhaps remove bug. . And maybe also faq-proposed should; be added. $\endgroup$ Jul 17, 2013 at 12:08

1 Answer 1


This is the expected behaviour.

If you have upvoted, then to clear your upvote click the upvote button again i.e. it acts as a toggle. If you click the downvote button it (a) undoes the upvote then (b) registers a downvote. Hence the -2 change.
