# Undoing a downvote

I'm sure this has come up before, but a cursory search of meta didn't turn up anything relevant. On occasion I have downvoted an answer, but then the author edited it and I felt that it didn't deserve the downvote any longer. However on a few occasions, I felt that though a downvote was no longer warranted, I still didn't want to upvote the answer. However, when I click on the appropriate arrows on the left, after having downvoted an answer, the only thing I seem to be able to do is convert the downvote to an upvote as opposed to converting it to "no vote." Is there a way to do this, or is this something on SE's radar?

• I think you can undo the vote by making a trivial edit to the post to reset the undo timer. – Qiaochu Yuan Oct 1 '11 at 0:21
• @Qiaochu: That seems like it could be a good workaround, except then I get my name associated with the post as an editor. Could be worse I guess. – Cheerful Parsnip Oct 1 '11 at 0:27
