Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

There is a flag button for voting to close a post. I can do that on my own post also.

What will happen when I vote my own question to close?

Is there possibility of losing points? – Mawia Feb 23 '13 at 10:46
It is exactly as having your question closed by 5 users other than yourself. As long as the question is not deleted, you won't lose the reputation you might have gained. – Bart Feb 23 '13 at 10:48

A vote to close on your own question counts as a regular vote to close. It is not a binding vote, but will simply be mixed into the other votes to close, 5 of which are needed to close a question.
