We currently have four tags about up/down-voting:

There's an argument to be made for keeping separate since there's a bit of stuff about downvoting culture specifically which isn't necessarily related to the voting mechanism as a whole. However, browsing through all of its questions, I believe nothing would be lost from merging it into a tag with the rest of these.

How many of these should we merge? The existence of and seems like a mistake, but what about the other one, and which should we merge them into?

Merge them all into

and shouldn't really exist in the first place tbh. They are both fully covered by , and a lot of the existing posts with those tags are also tagged with either /

As discussed in chat, could also cover // (as well as election votes). This is far too broad for a single tag, especially when tags currently exist to further specify what the question is about. Since my recent edits, all questions under discuss up/down votes and the questions that were tagged with that didn't have been more appropriately tagged.

Therefore, I suggest that all 4 tags be either merged or synonymised under , and the tag wiki make note of the related // tags
