These are the results of the votes. The first column shows the total number of points for a feature. This includes the negative votes, which are mentioned in parenthesis.

The "voters" column shows the number people who voted for this feature and the number of voters that voted against this feature (with a minus sign). Thus this ignores the number of points someone has given.
