I asked a duplicate question here on Meta, and it is so undeniably a duplicate that it received the same answer! Even if I disagree that it is an answer at all, the fact remains that the question was a duplicate. Early in the question's life, its duplicate status was pointed out and I cast my own close vote. But today I noticed it is devoid of votes, and pwa, the votes to close have expired!
Let's shoot the long story before it actually gets long: I can't cast another vote, so I cannot reopen it for closing review. Should I have flagged this for moderator attention? Or should I just sit tight knowing that the community disagreed with closing it? What is the general protocol for this situation in general?
I searched and found mostly posts about when you should close your own questions. I never quite found anything on the subject of what should be done when your attempt to close your question failed and you still believe it should be closed.
