Generally when there are one or more votes to close a question, the number of votes are shown like this

close (1)

For a specific question that I voted to close, I happened to notice that there is no vote count (there should be at least 1 vote, mine).

When I click "close", the close question dialog informs me that I have already voted to close the question. I do see close (n) for other questions that have a vote or more to close.

The question was closed and then reopened. The close dialog is informing you that you can't vote to close that post, because you had done so previously. No one has cast a close vote on that question since it was reopened, which is why the close link doesn't display the vote count.

  • Ah. That makes sense. Interestingly, it's been closed again and has 1 vote to reopen again.

  • Yeah, it seems that the debate over whether or not it should be open has made its way to Meta.
