The deleted answer to http://judaism.stackexchange.com/a/12100/732 has four delete votes, but two of them are from the same person.

How did that happen?

Most of us can't see deleted answers. Can you post a screenshot of: judaism.stackexchange.com/posts/12100/revisions ? –  NullUserException อ_อ Dec 14 '11 at 5:00

@NullUserExceptionอ_อ Please –  Michael Mrozek Dec 14 '11 at 5:10
@Fezziwig Link or didn't happen. –  NullUserException อ_อ Dec 14 '11 at 5:24
Haha so basically every time you vote to delete and then vote to undelete, it appends your name to the list of deleters without checking if you're there already? –  animuson Dec 14 '11 at 5:46
@animuson We are mods. We tend to break things. –  NullUserException อ_อ Dec 14 '11 at 5:56

Similar question: Can the same user vote to close a question twice? –  kiamlaluno Dec 14 '11 at 7:47
Delete vote is coming from ordinary members, but from the posted screenshots, it was deleted by moderator who need no "votes" - just semantics though. –  Shadow Wizard Dec 14 '11 at 8:52
Seen this before when a normal user casts a close vote, then becomes mod and casts a definitive close vote. Maybe the same thing for deleting here? –  Benjol Dec 14 '11 at 9:38
@NullUserExceptionอ_อ screenshot up –  Shmuel Brin Dec 15 '11 at 3:40
@ShmuelBrill This could be a bug, but it only takes 3 votes to delete posts anyways. –  NullUserException อ_อ Dec 15 '11 at 3:42

From this page: Converting to comment multiple times leaves behind undelete votes

This will be fixed in the next build. 
There is a vote cleanup function for 
old votes that wasn't running on this  
code path...and is now.

Huh, yeah, that's fixed and about undelete votes, not delete votes. –  Time Traveling Bobby Dec 14 '11 at 12:50
The answer wasn't converted to a comment, neither was it a mod who had the two delete votes. –  Shmuel Brin Dec 14 '11 at 17:44
I noticed that it's fixed –  Shmuel Brin Jun 30 '14 at 4:50
