My mind-reading skills are not great, but I don't think that was what
Sam meant.  He wrote «votes to override» (note the plural), which, to
me, means «there are not enough people who agree that this should be
overridden», not «we don't have the power to override this (regardless
of the number of votes».

Not really.  It weakens it, but it doesn't invalidate it.

No, he wrote «we don't have the votes to override».  The plural here is

That's what the current ballot effectively says.  We're refusing to
override the d-i team.
