Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Possible Duplicates:
Should I be able to cancel my up-vote on a comment?
Should downvoting be allowed on comments?

How come it is not possible to cancel a vote fore a comment?

Several times I have voted for a comment by mistake and wished I could cancel it.

Listen up, removing that notice from your question will get you into trouble. Please leave it intact and do not remove it. – Time Traveling Bobby Aug 18 '11 at 9:21

Because comments are 2nd class citizens around here. No rep is at stake so there's nothing to remove. The only thing votes on comments can do is 1) get you a (single) badge or 2) encourage or discourage behavior in comments. Because of that it's not a big deal if a couple miscast votes hang around the system.
