When we vote to close a question, the vote tally automatically updates, as well as giving us a popup saying that our vote has now been recorded.

When we retract a close vote, however, a popup still comes up saying that our vote was retracted, but the tally does not refresh. Refreshing the page yields the updated tally though. Although this might not be a serious bug, it sometimes is assuring to have that vote tally decrease - it can be confusing to have retracted a vote but not having the tally decrease.
