I am trying to reopen the closed question but I am trying to do then it displays the message "You have already voted to reopen.." but see in the screenshot question does not show reopen vote count. I think this should show here like also reopen(1) and it does generally but not for me.

    I believe reopen votes expire over time. When did you vote to reopen this question?

  • Your vote then has indeed expired. It takes only four days for votes to expire if a matching vote has not been added.

Reopen votes expire after 4 days if no more reopen votes are added, but you only ever get to vote once.

You've already voted on that post, but your vote has since expired.

    You might want to add a note that votes do not expire if the question has not received at least 100 views.

  • @JoshMein: Perhaps, but that's more detail than is required for answering the OPs direct query. The linked post explains that. Clearly, the post the OP voted to reopen does have more than 100 views. Apr 11, 2014 at 17:16
