I know that votes are locked until the post is edited.

Once I downvoted a post and left a comment. As it were, when I returned to it, the OP had incorporated my comment into his answer, allowing me to change my downvote.

Suppose that I had been the one to make the change (I have enough rep on that site to edit.) Would that then have allowed me to upgrade my own downvote?

  • Thanks to the two people above. I thought that might be the case, but I wanted to know "for sure." – Tom Au Sep 4 '13 at 19:41
  • Yes, this is possible. I have done it too. – H2CO3 Sep 4 '13 at 19:59
