remove text using query

Dear experts,

I am using fivestar module to rate different kind of content from my website. The problem is that I don´t know how to remove  the parenthesis that surrounds a text as the following:

<span class="total-votes">(<span>4</span>votes)</span>

Is there a way to leave only the number and  remove the parenthesis and the word votes? something like this:

<span class="total-votes">4</span>

Thanks in advance,

Winter

Try
$('span.total-votes').text(function(_, text) {
    return text.replace(/\(|votes\)/g, '');
});

Open in new window

<span class="total-votes">(<span>1</span>vote)</span>

would that be:

      $('span.total-votes').text(function(_, text) {
          return text.replace(/\(|votes\)/g, '');
          return text.replace(/\(|vote\)/g, '');
      
      });
