Disable votes on portal

Hi guys,
I would like to disable votes on an ideas portal. Why? So as to freeze the score. People were given 3 weeks to vote, and I now need to move on to finishing to rate each suggestion. I can still export the votes and import them in a custom field, but...
It would also allow portal users to still comment on ideas, without the ability of voting.
If you have any hint to how I can do this... please share!
Best,
Ben.

    We want to encourage creating new ideas for every request instead of voting on existing ideas, and the current UX suggesting to vote for similar ideas once you start typing is misleading in this regard. Can this be turned off?

    I agree with the need. In the meantime:

    Aha lists a custom script to remove votes and voting from the portal:

    .idea-endorsement {
      display: none;
    }
    .idea-content .nav-tabs > li:nth-child(2) {
      display: none;
    }

    Have you tried changing the "max vote per user" field to something lower than the lowest voter? Not sure if it would take away any votes, but if you changed it to a 1 (for example), than anyone who had voted would no longer be allowed to vote...
