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

I accidentally upvoted an answer and I was looking for a way to cancel it, but the only thing I can do is downvote. I'm I missing something or this feature is not implemented?

Hey why the downvote? It's not very intuitive to me. – Carlo Sep 18 '09 at 16:38
up vote 9 down vote accepted

Clicking the upvote arrow again will undo the upvote (the same with the downvote arrow and a downvote). However, if you do not undo your up or downvote within 5 minutes after casting it, you cannot undo the vote until or unless the post is edited.

Guess it's too late now to undo the upvote then... lucky guy. – Carlo Sep 17 '09 at 21:40

Click the Upvote image again.

you can click on upvote link again, and if you're quick enough you vote will be canceled. I'm usually not that quick.

If you hover over the upvote or downvote triangle, you will get a tooltip that says "... (click again to undo)"
