Hide voting arrows on deleted posts

Some locked posts don't have upvote or downvote buttons since you can't vote on them.

Wouldn't it be a logical step to remove the upvote and downvote buttons from deleted posts as well since you can't vote on them too?

Just a minor improvement in user-experience.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I don't think this is necessary. I like to see whether or not I've voted on a deleted post. But on the other hand, historically locked posts don't have the buttons either... – Mysticial Nov 16 '12 at 20:19
Correction: only historically locked questions don't have the voting buttons. Other locks, such as content disputes, do not remove the voting buttons. – animuson Nov 16 '12 at 20:20

That or somehow show that they are disabled.

Making a user click on something just to show them that they cannot do that is just poor form.
