I don't feel like pouring through a bugzilla discussion, but the reason is  
because I may have gone to vote for an issue, but found I was out of  
votes, and I want to keep my existing ones (or I had to cancel another bug  
vote in order to vote for the new one).  At a later time when one of my  
voted-for bugs gets resolved, then I can vote for the issue I couldn't  
vote on, or removed my vote from.

To this end, if bugzilla could remember bugs I "unofficially" voted for,  
that would be good too :)
