Previously, if you opened the vote-to-close dialog on a question you had already voted to close, you would not be able to select any of the close options.


With the new changes to close votes, the vote button is still removed, but the close reasons are selectable. This could be particularly confusing in the case that you quickly select the "off topic" close vote reason: the "you have already voted to close this question" message is no longer visible, so the close button appears to be missing inexplicably.


Relatedly, it would be nice if the "You have already voted to close this question" message could be more emphasized. I often skip it without thinking, and have become confused about why I'm unable to vote.

    I assume that -1 means "No, we should be allowed to vote to close questions multiple times" Commented Jun 13, 2013 at 2:59
  • And just out of curiousity, if you hit enter from the popup (no focus on the textarea), does the vote submit? Commented Jun 13, 2013 at 3:37
  • @ChrisForrence It does not. (They don't have any custom key press handlers and a form won't be submitted when you press enter if it doesn't have a visible submit button.)

If you voted to close a question, when you click Close again, you will not get the radio buttons.
