Looking at the answers to some old questions this morning, they don't seem to be in vote order.

For example: {http://parenting.stackexchange.com/questions/7/how-do-i-get-my-6-month-old-to-sleep-better-at-night/4062#4062}

Double-checking, they're appearing for me in date order. I don't remember changing any settings to make this happen.
