# Is it possible to downvote a deleted post?

I happen to notice that someone seemed to be able to downvote a deleted post.

How could this be possible? Or is it a system bug?

• BTW SEDE also shows score 30 for that question: data.stackexchange.com/math/query/845254/… Although I am not sure whether this is going to be changed after the next update of the database, or whether in the PostsWithDeleted table the score from the time of deletion is shown. Jul 5 '19 at 13:51
• What can be done to a deleted post is to keep posting comments! (moderators) \\ When I saw a mod comment on one of my old deleted meta questions I was like wow! (I received the notification). Not sure if you already knew about this tho
