I have gotten the "see vote counts" privilege on Stack Overflow, and I visited a lot of downvoted and upvoted posts on Stack Overflow on the mobile site, but I can't see number of upvotes and downvotes.

Does the mobile site not support it?

  • No the mobile view does not support showing vote splits. May 3, 2015 at 21:36
  • No, they do not! I know this, after much clicking, pinching, accidental voting, zooming, clicking, etc. I also tried other possibilities, such as smashing my fist on the screen, and talking abruptly to my phone with some pretty serious threats, some including water... but even after a dam good thrashing I realised it's the sites designed like this.

No, the mobile site does not support it. Early versions of the app did support it (might have just been development versions), but a lot of phones at the time didn't provide enough accuracy on the touchscreen to make it useful (I asked this same question several years ago).

Perhaps now that a lot of phones have larger screens, this feature may be more feasible...

  • The Android app definitely supports the feature, since I can view vote counts.

  • The iOS app also definitely supports viewing vote counts.
