I read this article and didn't notice anything about voting at all? Strange use of the word 'democratized'

I think the verb “to democratize” is used here in the extended meaning “to make accessible to all”, like democracy makes governance an affair accessible to all by making it an affair of the people.

But I agree that this use does seem strange sometimes in some contexts.
