If I click on voting up/down button (click again to undo) after voted up/down any answer then It gives error : your votes is now locked in unless answer is edited.


So, I want to know in how-much time vote is locked and can't back unless answer is edited ?

    It locks in 5 minutes I think.

Forever. No really, Forever....................

If you were looking for the vote reversal timeout, you can find it here. I did in under 2 minutes Why can't I change my vote if the post has been edited during the initial 5mn grace period?
