Why can't I take my vote up/down back?

Maybe I don't get "Vote up / Vote down" reactions right. I'm not a member on reddit and I do not have much experience with upvotes/downvotes on other platforms.

But sometimes, people make up their minds and want to revise their first reaction. That's possible with likes, with favorising, with befriending, following, etc. Only with Up-/Downvotes I have to stick to my original choice. When klicked, it's forever.

Can anybody explain the reason why Upvotes / Downvotes behave completely different than all the other reaction options?
