In the bounty FAQ it says

If you do not award your bounty within 7 days (plus the grace period), the highest voted answer created after the bounty started with at least 2 upvotes will be awarded half the bounty amount. If there's no answer meeting those criteria, the bounty is not awarded to anyone.

It should be a scoring vote of 2 or greater, (or whatever terminology is used). When I say that it should be a scoring vote of 2 or greater I mean that that's how the system actually works and therefore the FAQ needs to be fixed.

    $\begingroup$ @zyx I suspect it's just "score". E.g. the badge descriptions use this. $\endgroup$ – Lord_Farin Sep 6 '13 at 12:26
  • $\begingroup$ @zyx - Yes - "score == upvotes - downvotes". $\endgroup$ – Oded Sep 11 '13 at 13:26

Updated to state:

with a minimum score of 2

Instead of:
