I often review Close Votes in my favorite SE site ever since I got the close vote privilege and I have seen both Leave Open and Skip in the queues. What is the difference between both. From my understanding, marking it as "Leave Open" counts as a review, and "Skip" doesn't. Does marking as "Leave Open" add any reopen vote that negates a close vote or something like that?

    "Does marking as "Leave Open" add any reopen vote" - leaving something open and reopening something are two different things, even in plain English. And yes, voting so works against the close votes. – Tom Jul 1 '17 at 3:35
  • @Tom Excellent, that's all I need to know. Care to add that as answer so I can accept it? – Unitato says Reinstate Monica Jul 1 '17 at 4:54

    From this answer, if a post receives 3 Leave Open votes, it will remove from the close vote review queue. – Arulkumar Jul 1 '17 at 6:34
