On the moderator election page, the tooltip will display the text used for voting on a question; this is incorrect.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Cast a vote for or against any candidate
  2. Undo that vote

At this point, the tooltip content is changed, at least for that candidate.

See screenshots:

As you can see, the message doesn't quite fit here; these are certainly not questions.

  • After clearing cache and refreshing the page, I can still reproduce this consistently on the last candidate on the page. Commented Feb 18, 2014 at 17:14
  • Oh well. If you think that people will be confused by this tooltip that not everyone is seeing in the first place, maybe those people don't deserve to vote.

  • I'm not seeing this. Is your browser drunk (ie. using scripts)? Up & down arrows; vote count

The primary phase election voting tooltips were overridden by the default post voting tooltips. This shouldn't be happening anymore after build rev 2014.3.4.2013 on meta and 2014.3.4.1420 on sites.
