If you vote up again for a question that you have already voted up for, your up vote gets removed.

If you don't remember all the questions you upvoted, you can accidentally remove your upvote (if you are not looking at the number of votes) without knowing it.

My opinion is that voting up again for a question should do nothing.

If I want to downvote it after I gave a positive vote, I can do it by pressing the downvote button.

I removed the bug tag because it is a matter of opinion, but added the askbot tag instead.

Does it really give a downvote, or does it just remove the upvote. In addition to that you can give a downvote (and remove that as well). I think that's pretty good system, if I understood it correctly.

Isn't it just "remove my upvote" ? Actual downvote affects your Karma ?

Sorry... I tested all that and looks like I can't remove the downvote I gave. I feel a bit awkward now.

Yes, it's just "no vote" action, not a downvote.

It's the way it's supposed to be working. When voting up, the up arrow gets a very subtle glow and the arrow turns green. I would further ask why the indicator for voted questions is that indistinguishable.
