Isn't the “vote too old to be changed” a little too eager?

I think that voting should take at least a day to lock in. Someone could vote down accidentally on a good post, and then, 5 min later, the vote would be locked in.


I disagree.

Whenever that happens, one could just post a comment with a friendly request to make a minor edit in the post so that the downvote can be removed, or just edit the post themselves if one has enough reputation to edit other's posts.
