Does voting for an issue make that issue a higher priority?

It helps but that is not the only criteria. See this post and the linked Answers discussion in it.

This is also well worth a read, along with its links. There's a link to a blog by an Atlassian too, which explains how they try to take account of votes when they're prioritising stuff. Getting a little old, but I think it's all still valid, and mostly still accurate.
