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

Let's say that 5 people vote to close a question, all marking it "off topic". 4 people mark it to go to one site (e.g. server fault) and the fifth person marks it to go to a different site (e.g. super user). What happens in this case? Will the question just be closed, or will it be migrated?

It'll be migrated to Server Fault. The rule for migrations on SO is that 4 people must vote to migrate to the same target site, else the question will not be migrated. On other sites, the required number of people agreeing is 3.

Source: Require more than simple majority of close votes to migrate

Is this stated somewhere explicitly? seems to conflict with John's answer – Foo Bah Sep 22 '11 at 3:28
