I need a free wordpress plugin that will allow the users to upvote or down vote every post. Something similar to stackoverflow.com
If not give me suggestions of how to create one. I am a java programmer and have never coded anything in PHP.

For all of my rating uses i use WP-PostRatings
GD Star Rating ( plugin is no longer in development ) was pretty comprehensive.
Can't answer completely now, but i could achieve a vote on/off functionality by implementing a "custom comment type". It behaves very much like a comment, except it doesn't get listed/counted as a normal comment and can be retrieved independently from the comments table.
If you are interested I can post some code (quite some hacking into it, so i'll post it if there's some interest).
