Sometimes an answer has a low voting level like 3.

How do I know if this is caused by a few upvotes or approximately the same number of up and down votes?

Just as an aside, the 'low' voting level is relative. In some tags an answer with 3 votes has been unusually well rewarded. –  McNab Sep 21 '12 at 8:25

You cannot see the exact vote breakdown until you have reached the "established user" reputation level, 1000 points.

At that point, you can click on the vote tally to see the up and down vote counts:

At that zoom level, voting looks like an Arcade game. Pew pew! –  Pëkka Sep 21 '12 at 8:20

@Pekka The screenshot's from Arqade, so it's fitting. :) –  Anna Lear Sep 21 '12 at 14:16

Users with less than 1000 rep can use userscripts like this one to view the vote breakdown. –  bfavaretto Sep 22 '12 at 22:28
