Can we have the ability to rescind a close vote before it closes?

I just voted to close a question and few seconds later realized the question would be better of on a different stack-exchange site instead of just closing it.
I have no way to do that though, once I pressed the trigger, the question is dead!

This is by design. You can always cast a reopen vote as well, if the question does end up closed. –  Pops Feb 2 '12 at 19:44
    
@PopularDemand - What's the point of reopening in order to close->off-topic->other SE site ??? –  Oded Feb 2 '12 at 19:46

@Popular Demand why would it be by design, what is the reasoning? –  Itay Moav -Malimovka Feb 2 '12 at 19:47

@ItayMoav - Possibly to ensure that one takes a bit of time when voting to close instead of doing so automatically... –  Oded Feb 2 '12 at 19:49

@ItayMoav - Yes, you are. Downvotes on meta mean disagreement. The rules are different here. –  Oded Feb 2 '12 at 19:49
    
Looks like the most unpopular answer in MSO history is about to get a few more downvotes... –  Adam Rackis Feb 2 '12 at 20:22
    
@Adam Rackis - If I get more down votes, I'll commit suicide –  Itay Moav -Malimovka Feb 3 '12 at 1:58

You can always flag for moderator attention.

However, since it was closed and less then 4 closers (assuming no moderators involved) did not vote to migrate to the same site (including your mistake), it is unlikely the moderators will migrate as it was a community decision to close.

You can always leave a comment suggesting to the OP to post on the appropriate SE site.
