the English is clumsy.. we would never say votes of democracy. Votes for ... or democratic votes..

"for democracy" is still marked wrong, 4 years later.

"Votes of democracy" does not make sense in English. Votes for

Sorry, this is not English. No one casts votes "of" something. One votes either "for" or "against" something. The correct English translation is "Ours are votes for democracy." Please start accepting this translation immediately!

Very poor English translation

It seems shoud be: I nostri voti sono di democrazia.

The English translation is a complete hash. No native English speaker would say this. I went with "Ours are democracy's votes" which was accepted, and is maybe a little better than this, but still not something I would ever say.
