Is it possible to change a close reason after a question has been closed. (And would you want to)?

I voted to close a question and specified wrong reason by mistake. Now, when I go to "close" menu I cannot change anything. How can I edit my vote or revert it at all?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Don't worry. What's important is that if the question needed to be closed it was closed. – ChrisF Sep 6 '11 at 18:33

It is not possible; once you voted, you cannot change the reason for closing the question.

This should not be a problem, as the question is closed for the reason that is chosen from the majority of the users who voted to close it, or the reason chosen from a moderator. In the case there is a reason that is chosen from the majority of the voters, then the first chosen reason is the one used to close the question.
