Except on Voat 1 upvote = 1 upvote. Nobody knows how the reddit "score" is calculated, but it is not a total of the up/downvotes. They have some shady algorithm that calculates a post "score" based on frequency of upvotes, political slant and marketability etc...

And you can see both Up and Downvotes.

What about Voat? Is the true score of a post shown or is it muddled like Reddit?

On voat the score is upvoats minus downvoats. You can check it yourself if you want! Due to caching and load balancing the displayed score might not always be 100% current, but that's a separate issue.

Not to mention "paid for promoting" upvoting.
