How to reset a vote if you mistakenly click up or down vote button. I wanted to upvote an answer but have clicked the upvote of another answer (which really not a good answer) which has 0 votes. Anyway to reset it? If I click on downvote it gives him -1 which I don't want to do :D

If you want to undo an upvote, you can click the upvote button again; If you want to undo a downvote, you can click the downvote again.


This can only be done within a 5 minute window after your vote unless the post is edited.
