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

If a bounty is active on a question, that question cannot be closed. However, attempting to vote to close works just fine until the "Vote to close" button is pressed. Only then does the "this question has an active bounty and cannot be closed" message pop up.

There may be a technical reason for this, but there's no workflow reason for it. Please show the message as soon as the "close" link is clicked.
