I have rejected an edit today which was approved with only one approval vote.

The edit received only three votes with two rejects and one approval.

The editor already suggested the same edit before which got rejected with three reject votes.

One more thing is, the approved reviewer(Jack Ramzi) name's label has a blue background unlike others.

    He seems to be the owner of the post.

    For reference, the Suggested Edits FAQ says, "The owner of a post may cast a binding vote to accept or reject any modification of their post." Jul 23, 2013 at 7:15

In Suggested edits review OP's vote is binding vote. In other words OP's review is the final review same as moderators. Here OP is the OP of the post it can be either question or answer. Here Jack Ramzi is the OP of that post.

  • so, the Op name's label will be with blue background in the review page, is it?

    @Azik for what it's worth, the blue background was added only after I asked for such a feature to prevent exactly such confusion. Jul 23, 2013 at 7:22
  • @ShaWizDowArd - Good to know that. Thanks for that request.

Jack Ramzi is the original author of the question, and therefore the owner of the post. A post's owner's decision to accept or reject an edit is final.
