The vote can be extended to allow people to take a more informed
decision.
They can change their vote if they have already voted, should they wish
so after consulting the wiki.

There are plenty of possible scenarios where someone might be inclined to
change their vote if they had more information. It seems like having a
new vote would be better than just saying "you voted, so you can change
it". Someone loses their access for whatever reason to the voting system
(lost the e-mail, perhaps). Someone's on holiday during the extended
period.

If you want an accurate vote, provide the information up front, then have
the vote. Don't start the vote and then provide more information and say
"you can change your vote if you like". You'll end up with people voting
based on different available information at the time they cast their vote.
