I just accidentally downvoted an answer, and now it says “you have already voted on this answer”.

I did that twice when the page jumped (due to an ad I think) right as I went to up vote an answer. I think they were closer before, when I did that.

I would like to see something done, maybe this is it.

I propose an alternative suggestion: how about simply letting us undo a vote if we feel the need to do so, for whatever reason? I know I've accidentally downvoted good answers before, and my issue wasn't really with the spacing so much as a lack of attention paid.

If nothing else, it could be a "one-time-only" revote (IIRC Stack Exchange uses that policy unless a post is edited) if abuse is a concern, though I have no clue how abuse could be an issue, so I'd argue more for not limiting the revote. Either way.

Not that OP's suggestion is bad, I just feel like my idea would achieve ultimately the same effect (more accurate voting) while handling other fringe cases (misclicks, etc.).
See me on Discord! ^.^

That would work too!
