The questions method of the API returns the number of delete votes among other kinds of votes: sample query.

But the answers method does not have a delete_vote_count field available in the filter:

    "Delete votes" on answers are a very different beasty. They don't work the same as for questions and, IIRC, they are only available for 20K users and moderators -- and only if the A has a negative score, for the former group. Commented Mar 12, 2015 at 0:02
