Participants never voted on what would go in the main track.
The selection of the talks was done by the academic committee, as
mentioned in the Call For Papers.

What we introduced last year and what looks like a voting system 
is in fact a way to optimizing the talks and bof schedule and
find disjunct pairs of events that can run in parallel. The idea
is to tighten the schedule to minimize the fragmentation of the
event for the participants.

That is unfortunate. Will you come to Debconf? It would be
interesting to meet you in person.
