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

On the election page if you click on the number of votes it will show you the breakdown of up and down votes in the same way that question up and down votes can be viewed.

But if the candidate has more than 100 down votes then the down votes count is missing the minus sign:

up vote 24 down vote accepted

The +/- prefix is hidden for counts larger than 99. Your screenshot also lacks the "+" before the upvote count. Compare with these two-digit counts:
