About a year ago, the count of votes cast was changed so that it includes votes cast on closed questions. Prior to that, your vote count would go down when a question was closed.

Every now and then I'll notice that my total vote count has gone down and I'm trying to figure out why. I'm guessing migrations, but I can't find anything that says one way or another if your vote count goes down when questions are migrated, and I can't think of any other situation when you'd "lose" votes.

Are there any (other) situations in which a person's vote count would go down?

Yeah, your vote count goes down during a migration. Aside from that, the only other times it goes down (short of you reversing a vote yourself) is if you serially upvote someone and the votes get reversed.

@AboobackerMk: No, they still count. See meta.stackexchange.com/questions/117846/… – Manishearth Feb 18 '13 at 8:28
