Seemingly cat traps love medley,
Cats love the responses to me,

I help prevent a big clean up,
So you can type up Sup!

I trap cats like a boss,
since they can't get across,

I put a bounty on this guy,
and attracted so many guys,

I look like an election just happened,
these people so happy for them votes

What am I? To be clear, I am a question and sorry for making the riddle rhyme!

Hint:

The answer is a specific question...

Hint 2 and 3:

The question is another SE question and there are no anagrams.

I think this is referring to this question on Lifehacks.SE:

How can I keep my cat off my keyboard?


Reasoning:

Seemingly cat traps love medley,

The highest-voted answer has a photo with a box labelled "Cat Trap", and is by user Tom Medley.

Cats love the responses to me,

There are 12 different answers, 4 of which have >30 upvotes.

I help prevent a big clean up

By preventing a cat from sitting on your keyboard, you prevent having to erase all the text that was "typed" by the cat.

So you can type up Sup!

I'm assuming this just means that you are able to type.

I trap cats like a boss,

Again, the box is labelled "Cat Trap".

since they can't get across,

Cats are distracted by the box, and can't get "across" to the keyboard.

I put a bounty on this guy,

The top-voted (and accepted) answer was awarded a 500-rep bounty.

and attracted so many guys,

12 different people provided answers.

I look like an election just happened,
these people so happy for them votes

There were an awful lot of upvotes on the question and several of the answers.

Is it

a Puzzling (or extensively, StackExchange) question?

Because

1.

Seemingly cat traps love medley, Cats love the responses to me,
I trap cats like a boss, since they can't get across

Cats are users, that like to answer riddles (or in SE like them because they get through their problems)

2.

I help prevent a big clean up, So you can type up Sup!
In Puzzling you prevent the site closing posting many questions. In SE You help prevent a cleanup using tags that otherwise would be burninated

3.

I put a bounty on this guy, and attracted so many guys
Bounty part is self explaining, both in Puzzling or SE

4.

I look like an election just happened, these people so happy for them votes
You are happy if a comment or question gets many votes, right? :D

5.

What am I? To be clear, I am a question and sorry for making the riddle rhyme!
This is a question, even though it doesn't have question marks in it :D

I'm not sure but is it...

your own question in Meta Stack Exchange:
What happened to the other people? My Impact (people reached) just dropped

and attracted so many guys

The question is about reached people

I look like an election just happened,
these people so happy for them votes

In the question the reason for lost people is that the other answers had got more votes.
