In regard to this question, I voted to close using a custom close reason. When I had finished typing and submitted, another user had done the same, but I liked his formulation of the, in intent, same custom reason better. I retracted my vote, intending to vote to close again by joining the reason given by the other user.

While my vote is not recorded (the question stands, as I type this, at 1 close vote), I cannot vote again, and am given the system-response "You already voted to close this question." If this is status-by-design, it's a bit misleading (the backwardness of my actions notwithstanding).

It appears to be by design. It's the subject of this feature request on Meta SE, which is marked now, but only because you can now cast a new close vote after 14 days.
