You can't vote yourself down. – Pëkka Oct 29 '12 at 16:20
Probably someone downvoted your post the same moment when you tried to upvote it. – Goran Jovic Oct 29 '12 at 16:21

The most likely situation is that someone else downvoted you as you were attempting to upvote yourself.

  • You gain the ability to upvote people at a reptutation of 15 (you have 6, you can't cast votes on anybody currently)
  • You gain the ability to downvote people at 125 rep (which 6 isn't even close)
  • And you will never gain the ability to vote on your own questions/answers/comments

Just for reference, you can cast closevotes, reopen votes, and delete votes on your posts with the correct amount of rep. – hexafraction Oct 29 '12 at 16:25
@obsessiveSSO, that hardly applies to him (he has 6 rep) – Azulflame Oct 29 '12 at 16:32
