How do I view close votes and reasons?

Click on the "close" link under any of your questions, under the question text and to the left side.

Yet, I don't see that link.


Is the advice in error, or did I miss it?

Your question is already closed. If it wasn't, that reopen link would read close — you can only view the vote counts during voting.

When the question is actually closed, the users who voted (and the winning close reason) are made public, anyway.

Ah, so the advice is in error. Thanks. – ChrisJJ Sep 27 '11 at 20:55

Once the question closes, the close link changes to the reopen link.

At that point, I don't think the vote counts are available to view any longer, as the information is consolidated into the closing banner.

The question to which the screenshot is referring is already closed; that is why you don't see the link to close it. It has been replaced from the link to reopen it.
