This package is 7 years old, I think you'd better explore a new option. Adding an alias for yourself would be much easier.

From the wiki:

Alternatively, if you have set up ssh authentication, you can directly vote from the command line using your ssh key. This means that you will not need to save or type in your AUR password.

$ ssh vote package_name

@jtiemer: Thank you for the comment. I am following the issue in upstream [1]. Let's see what the developer comment.

I'd like to bring to your attention that setting a strong password for your AUR account, i.e. with escape sequences in it (aka a backslash), will break aurvote. This might be trivial to many, but might be puzzling to some, so it might be worth putting a note in the "aurvote -h" output and/or to put a default comment into the ~/.config/aurvote which explains this. Alternatively I'd suggest to put the password in double quotes so it doesn't get parsed maybe? Sorry if it sounds stupid, I'm not a real coder. But somehow fixing this at the aurvote side to allow for strong passwords seems like a good idea to me. I submitted this issue to github issue #18 as well (open, unresolved).

@C0rn3j: Thanks for reporting this. Could you submit this issue in github:

Voting yes leaves a file called "y" in the current working directory.
