This may be related to Profile vote stats vs. Voters tab: delay, discrepancy, or just different data? but that has so there may be some more code to look at.

In the screenshot below, from my profile page, under IMPACT it says that I have 22,071 votes cast but on the votes tab it says that I have 30,383 votes cast.

Is this discrepancy to be expected?

    Link to the votes tab of the profile page is not visible to ordinary user, gives 404 for me. Commented Jan 18, 2017 at 5:12
  • @alexolut I'll leave the link there in case it is useful to any SE staff looking into this.

I don't think it is a bug. As per the tooltip shown in the IMPACT box, vote count is the total number of upvotes and downvotes. Where as the count in votes sections is a combined total of up, down, deletion, undelete, closure, and reopen votes.

  • You may be right. I can see close and deletion votes on the votes tab too. I would be surprised if there are over 8,000 of them.

  • How you explain this from my profile? Commented Jan 18, 2017 at 5:18
  • @alexolut I'm unclear what you are trying to show via that graphic, and no one but staff can see details of your votes cast.

  • @PolyGeo if Aziz's version is true, how number of ALL votes can be less than a sum of UP&DOWN (178 < 188)? Commented Jan 18, 2017 at 5:27

    @alexolut due to deleted posts. You up/down voted on 10 posts which were later deleted. Commented Jan 18, 2017 at 5:31

  • @AzizShaikh but why these votes included only in impact section, but not for "all votes" tab? There's some kind of inconsistency. Commented Jan 18, 2017 at 5:42
  • @alexolut Agreed with you, there is some inconsistnecy but probably because you dont get to see individual deleted posts/users for which you have made an up/down vote Commented Jan 18, 2017 at 6:09

    I just used a mod tool to see how many questions I have closed and the number is 8.2K which will pretty much close the gap that I had noticed, so I'll change this from bug to support to see if it can be checked out with less priority.
