No - all voting is anonymous. – ChrisF Nov 15 '11 at 9:52
The question is, why would you need to, really? – tombull89 Nov 15 '11 at 10:20
@tombull89 : Just to know in general. Thats all. – Praveen Nov 15 '11 at 10:23
@SPK: Don't think of it in terms of you wanting to see who voted on you; Think of it in terms of whether you want people to see how you voted on them. Imagine a world where people weren't always professional and responsible and sometimes held grudges against otherwise anonymous people who are just trying to participate in the community. Voting is anonymous simply as another mechanism to try to protect the community from trolls and to promote repercussion-less participation in the community, by the community. – David Nov 15 '11 at 17:10

No, voting is anonymous. It is intended that way.
