By default, board collaborators can cast their votes on any object that was placed anywhere on the board. However, you can easily change the Voting area and narrow it down to a specific part of the board that voters won't be able to trespass during the session.
To reset the default Voting area, click Change in the Voting area section of the menu. Now you can drag and re-size the selection box as you want (you will always be able to change it):
