What's the point of voting?

During contests, users can vote on which ones they like best. I read the rules and it says that specific judges rate them from 1-10. What's the point of voting if certain people decide it?

The people who vote decide half of the finalists. The people judging and the people choosing the other half may not be the same, so voting helps you get the project to the people who actually make the decision.
