I can't post a screenshot right now, but when I look at my Votes Cast list, I can see questions which I have voted to close, with closure (deleted) as the status, like this one.

However I can view the questions just fine. Could this be a bug?

    That question is not deleted that you link to. – nanofarad Dec 10 '13 at 11:28
  • But it says it is in the Votes Cast list. – JMK Dec 10 '13 at 11:29

    The close vote is deleted – juergen d Dec 10 '13 at 11:29

No, this is not a bug, When you see a closure (deleted) on your votes cast list. It means your close vote on the question has been deleted not the question itself.

Close votes expire if no new votes are cast after a given amount of time(or for other reasons such as question closure) and the system then marks them as Closure (deleted).

It's the vote that's deleted. The question you linked to is itself not deleted.

    If the question gets closed then the vote gets deleted too – juergen d Dec 10 '13 at 11:31
