Challenge host's action to disqualify.

Does a  host's action to disqualify during the voting process affect the votes already cast by the entrant and the other entrants?

Doesn't it constitute an arbitrary action, by a host, that a voter's action is nullified for the particular entry disqualified and the mathematical results of that voter's action on other entries?  Isn't it like the host saying to any of the other voters; "I don't care how you vote, I can take away your vote by simply removing the picture that you voted for?

Doesn't it mislead participants to say that they can vote undisturbed?

So I ask, not because a particular host, in a current challenge, disqualified my entry, but because that event generated these questions that I now ask on behalf of those invited to participate.

Shouldn't a host disqualify before voting starts, only?  And, if they disqualify after voting starts, shouldn't this action be viewed as arbitrary and capricious?

Be glad to provide particulars, as this develops.
