If you vote through Boardvote extention, you can vote either blocked or not. However on
the Wikimedia Election convention disallow indefinitely blocked/banned users to vote.
The lately proposed "written out of oral tradition" suggests also temporally
blocked/banned users will be disable to vote too.
The requested feature will enforce this convention: if someone is blocked/banned from
editing at the very moment of his or her voting at a certain wiki, he or she cannot
vote. If this feature is on Both temporally blocked one and indefinitely blocked one
cannot vote. The default value will be "yes".
Ideally this will be implemented until the Wikimedia Board Election begins on September
1, 2006, however it will be helpful even implemented after that, unless the Election
convention is changed.
This bug is no longer relevant (2 years old), so closing for housekeeping purpose.
