I’ve opened someone’s existing old closed question and noticed that it has two pending delete votes. I disagree and want to vote against its deletion. How can I do it?
The similar process for close is implemented.
Instead of trying to vote against a question being deleted I think you should edit it to address the reason(s) those delete votes were cast.
Sometimes it’s not obvious why they were cast but in most cases I think it is.
Vote to reopen. If the question is reopened, the delete votes are meaningless since users can vote to delete only on closed questions (and the delete votes get cleared).
So, in a very practical sense, a reopen vote is a vote against deletion.
