Its worth pointing out whats said at the top of the page at that link:

"...one of the fundamental aspects of accomplishing things within the
Apache framework is doing so by consensus...".

Voting is a fine way for gauging consensus or for demonstrating
consensus but a vote isn't going to to achieve consensus. Working out
how find consensus on contentious issues is one of the roles of
incubation, and its just as important to an Apache project as working
out the design for some tricky area of code.
