I'm new here, and one of my posts got down voted.

How to I protest that?

Can the down vote get cancelled?

You can take to meta (as you did) and try to explain why you thought it was downvoted "incorrectly". However, downvotes are subjective and stackexchange relies on a model of community self-moderation. There is no formal way to protest a (single) downvote.
You may also investigate the edit history to see if downvotes happened before any major revisions to understand potential downvotes.
