This question already has an answer here:
I have accrued better than top 5% in one site. Here on the site that discusses mechanics and operation of that site and others, I don't have the simple option to downvote a post because the "association bonus" rep is below that threshold.
A specific example is the MIT license changeover. It overwhelmingly affects Stack Overflow where I have plenty of rep points, yet the thread was moved to this site where I do not have enough to record a downvote.
I get that it should probably not work in the opposite direction. But I think that there should be some allowances granted in permission specifically for this and other meta sites so they take into account a member's standing on the site that is the target of discussion.
EDIT: I did search for this for a few minutes and didn't find the linked question, so I'll take that as a whoops on me.
