No, voting isn't regarded as the best way with which to set priorities. Lets say you have one bugs with 100 votes that will take a team of 10 a month to fix.

Lets say you have 50 bugs, each with 2 votes that will each take an hour to fix.

Which would you suggest gets fixed? Which is a more productive user of developers' time?

Of course any bug with 100 votes should be fixed or marked wontfix after long discussion, but not necessarily as a priority over all other bugs.
