In the users menu on the summary tab we have to lower right the overview of votes:

User menu overview

When I click on "view more":

Votes detail

The vote count differs? I checked that no votes from other stack exchange sites were counted in. This would also lead to different vote counts.

  • Oh, yes, that might be the answer. Sounds logical at least.

  • I've now confirmed that deleted posts are not counted on the voting tab; I found a question where I downvoted two answers, and one of those is now deleted but not listed on my tab. Aug 24, 2012 at 9:26

The counts on your summary page are almost always going to be off, because:

  • The votes tab counts up, down, deletion, undeletion, closure and reopen votes, your summary only counts up and down voting.

  • The votes tab can show you up or down votes only, but those counts are only for still-listed posts. Deleted posts are not counted in that view, so the counts will be lower than your summary overview where deleted posts are counted.

For example, my upvote count is 'off' by 28 on the votes tab, or 0.96% of the total, but my downvote count has a 86 vote discrepancy, meaning 46.24% of my downvotes contributed to posts being deleted.

So, not a bug, luckily. :-)
