WHY:

With any project management, and working in a team environment, there are a ton of competing ideas, tasks and issues to deal with. Given the limited resources, we need a way to crowdsource internal votes to guide us which tasks should be worked on first.

HOW:

Similar to the rating custom field, we should have a vote field (perhaps a built in field rather than a custom field.

Also, the vote should take into account # of votes any user is assigned to. For instance, when evaluating tasks/ideas in the Engineering Space, senior engineers should have more voting power than say a junior/intern engineers.

Likewise, in other spaces, people with the highest domain expertise will be afforded a higher voting power.

Trello has this feature which is super helpful in ranking ideas/features
