Whenever a questions receives a close vote it will enter the review queue which was created to help users with community moderation.
In this reviews we have a limited set of actions, basically we can only:
also vote to close which increases the close vote number and helps to get questions closed early.

Every single close vote was a user saying this question does not fit within the scope of this Stack Exchange site for the reason following.
Stack Exchange’s policy is to close a question if five community votes are gathered, or a moderator votes to close or a user with a golden badge in the respective tag votes to close (as a duplicate only).

There are so-called migration paths and not all sites have them; one of the footnotes in the FAQ about migration says this:
2 Not every site has selectable migration paths; in particular, beta sites, recently-graduated sites, and Meta Stack Exchange don't have any selectable sites (other than the site's per-site meta, if applicable, and vice versa). On such ...

All your sites giving you a notification may be a bit much, but most people ...
I assume that this happened with this question (I could reproduce it).
The reason for this is that translation and english-to-german both trigger the same tag warning (see this meta post). So technically you have been seeing two tag warnings for two different tags, which just happen to be identical.
Unfortunately, from our point of view there is no way to ...
Meta.Stackexchange has the answer.
This change is live now:
If you voted to close a post, and it hasn't been edited since the time it was closed, then you won't see that post in the Reopen Queue.
