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

In the users menu on the summary tab we have to lower right the overview of votes:

User menu overview

When I click on "view more":

Votes detail

The vote count differs? I checked that no votes from other stack exchange sites were counted in. This would also lead to different vote counts.

Oh, yes, that might be the answer. Sounds logical at least. – tombom Aug 24 '12 at 9:18
I've now confirmed that deleted posts are not counted on the voting tab; I found a question where I downvoted two answers, and one of those is now deleted but not listed on my tab. – Martijn Pieters Aug 24 '12 at 9:26
up vote 6 down vote accepted

The counts on your summary page are almost always going to be off, because:

  • The votes tab counts up, down, deletion, undeletion, closure and reopen votes, your summary only counts up and down voting.

  • The votes tab can show you up or down votes only, but those counts are only for still-listed posts. Deleted posts are not counted in that view, so the counts will be lower than your summary overview where deleted posts are counted.

For example, my upvote count is 'off' by 28 on the votes tab, or 0.96% of the total, but my downvote count has a 86 vote discrepancy, meaning 46.24% of my downvotes contributed to posts being deleted.

So, not a bug, luckily. :-)
