In the Summary tab on the Activity page, for example, on English Language & Usage, my total upvote count is 1084 and my total downvote count is 305, which makes a total of 1389 votes. This includes votes on now-deleted questions and answers. The link which leads to a more detailed view (i.e., the Votes tab) says, "View all 1389 votes":

Image showing vote counts; Misleading link description highlighted: "View all 1389 votes"

Now this can be quite misleading, suggesting that I should be able to see all 1389 votes when I can only see a total of 1221 votes (upvotes + downvotes) in the Votes tab (as upvotes and downvotes on now-deleted posts are not shown in the Votes tab).

I think "View all 1389 votes" should read "View all votes". This is reasonable because it leads to the Votes tab which consists of "all votes" (reopen, deletion, undeletion, etc.), not just upvotes and downvotes. Deleted posts should be shown in the Upvote & Downvote subtabs as well, so that the discrepancy between vote counts in the Summary and Votes tabs can be taken care of once a user reaches the necessary 10,000 reputation to view deleted posts.

    Weirdly enough, when you open the Votes tab (e.g., following that link), deleted posts are displayed for all vote types except upvotes and downvotes.
