A few minutes ago, I saw a tag called on Stack Overflow. I assume someone asked a question using this tag, which was then deleted or edited, but this tag is still there.

I'm OK with it still existing, but to me, this tag doesn't make sense. I know there is a option, but this doesn't work for these kinds of tags.

What should be done in this situation? Is there an option like "vote to close this tag"?

Yes, there is — removing the tag. Unused tags will be automatically deleted after some time. For single-use tags like your example, you don't even technically have to do that, since they'll be deleted automatically too, but it can't hurt.

If a tag that you feel shouldn't exist has widespread usage, bring it up on the respective site's meta and it might just get burninated (or you might learn why it still exists).
