    Why should developers not have the right to downvote, especially when they're the ones who wrote the system in the first place? – BoltClock's a Unicorn Mar 28 '13 at 10:59

    Also, downvotes are different on meta. I would imagine that even if a couple of the downvotes are due to lack of research effort a lot of the rest are "OMG DON'T MAKE THIS A FEATURE". – Rory Mar 28 '13 at 11:00

You can never find that out, unless the user tells you themselves. Votes on Stack Overflow are totally anonymous. Even moderators can't see who has voted for you. They can, however, see the voting patterns.

So the conclusion is: It is impossible to see who has voted on your post ( question/answer ).

An update from Jeff's answer developers of SE can see this part.

  • from my question, you get highest reputation in single answer :P – Chintan Khetiya Mar 28 '13 at 11:10
