I noticed that the "history" button (under each nomination) is positioned slightly higher than the other links/buttons. This can be observed on the current Stack Overflow election page (yes, it's just one pixel but still noticeable):

Here's another screenshot from Bricks:

One more thing, the first letters of the words on post action links/buttons were capitalized recently but they're not capitalized here. They probably should be changed for consistency.

This seems to have been (partially, see below) fixed at some point in time, both the alignment and the capitalization:

(here is a live election where you can check; here is a Wayback Machine snapshot for posterity)

but not on (some?) other sites, as this nomination shows:

'Link' is an HTML anchor and 'History' a button (styled as a link, and apparently some custom site themes react differently to that).

For the record, I'm using Firefox on macOS (latest versions of both) and it's also happening on Safari.

  • For me, it looks fine on both election pages (Lifehacks and ELL). So, it might be browser-specific. I'm using Chrome 64-bit on Windows 10. Aug 2 at 19:33

    It might be a Windows vs. macOS thingy, yes.

  • There's an election going on at MathOverflow, if you'd like to check whether it's still happening on macOS for you. :) Sep 24 at 20:26
  • @TheAmplitwist it's looking fine there, but as implied in the answer, it might have something to do with custom site designs.

  • Oh! I guess I missed that implication, I thought it might only be OS or browser specific, as discussed in the comments above. Thanks for checking, though! Sep 24 at 20:31
  • @TheAmplitwist yeah, it's confusing, since the original answer (see the revision list) stated it was 100% solved.
