Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I was wondering if a question is closed, then are views after the question is closed still counted towards total views? If the answer is yes then would that add to the total view count value towards earning the "Popular Question" family of badges?

As far as I know, closing only affects the ability to add answers. The view count has nothing to do with that so it should be updated.

You can also still vote on them and they count for the badges.

Yes, the only discrimination done on views (basically) is not counting a lot of self-views.
