Exactly what kind of engine processes your spellcheck?

Seriously, explain this to me.

I'd advise you to edit your description to better explain what you expect from peer users. For non-English natives like me, this looks like ranting or frustration in front of a surprising reaction of the spell checker. I fear your question may thus be closed by some "moderators" as either off-topic or offensive.

On the other hand, your text contains "contractions" (voting's begun instead of formal voting has begun). I was always told to avoid contractions in writing.

It may be a matter of dictionary. "Vote" is accepted but "voting" may not be included (strange because "vote" is both a noun and a verb).

And what do you mean with tags political and hellworld? I don't think they are really meaningful for LO behaviour.

The answer is simple: the engine is (mainly) Hunspell. However, if something is falsely detected as a mistake, it has nothing to do with the engine. You should report issues to the dictionary maintainer(s). Read the release notes for more detail (say, contact them by email or via a web site).
