This feature request referrers to the "Votes in Release" statistic that appears in the box next to the title of a Release.
In other types of content on CodePlex this box area allows the user to vote on the subject (in this case, it would be a particular Release), but it seems that "Votes in Release" just displays the total votes of all of the work items assigned to the release.
I don't see the benefit of having this statistic. If the user votes on a bug that should be fixed, and it gets fixed and assigned to the next release, that doesn't necessarily mean the user voted for the "release" itself - especially if it turns out that the bug wasn't even fixed properly, or if a feature was just closed without even being implemented. But regardless of its usefulness it should be displayed near the Work Items at the bottom of the page, because what this stat really describes is the number of votes for the improvement of a previous release, not the end result of the current release.
A better feature for that box would be to allow users to vote on the release itself, just like they would with a feature request.
