When I print a Stack Overflow question, the votes each answer has is not getting printed. As a result, I was not able to differentiate a postive voted answer and a negative voted answer.

This is also the case with accepted answer.

Is this intentional or am I missing something here?

This is intentional. In the stylesheet you'll find the following rule:


Which hides all the votes. This includes the accepted answer check mark.
