There are a lot of kinds of votes. Some are binding (i.e., only 1 single vote is required to incur the related result) while some require more votes to be confirmed. Is there a category about what votes are "binding"?
The following are considered binding votes:
- Diamond moderators: binding vote for everything on sites they moderate. (close/reopen/delete/undelete/review)
- Post author:
- For questions, binding delete vote as long as there is not an answer with an upvote, or multiple answers that have no votes.
- For answers, binding delete vote as long as the answer is not accepted.
- Review: post authors have binding vote when reviewing a suggested edit on the post.
- All other votes are not binding.
- Users with a gold tag badge: Binding close or reopen votes, but only when voting to close or reopen a question that has that tag, and only when voting to close/reopen as a duplicate. (as long as they didn't add that tag themselves to the question)
