This is pretty trivial, but why is it not possible to un-display the up/down vote breakdown on questions and answers here? I found the simplest workaround is to refresh the page. Another clunky workaround is to up or down vote. It seems like a simple enough feature add to revert to the previous view.
I wouldn't think a re-query of the database would be necessary for this functionality. It would save more on performance than a refresh. The reason I speak of performance is because of the implementation of it in the first place: Show Total Votes (or Up/Down Votes)
Being able to revert to prior information just "feels right" to me on a well-designed webpage so I'm surprised SE doesn't have this simple capability.
