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?

    Yes. Your own edits also unlock your vote.

  • I'm pretty sure I've done this myself.

  • Thanks to the two people above. I thought that might be the case, but I wanted to know "for sure."
