Sometimes clan/server members get vote kicked or role kicked and an option to exclude them from voting would be really nice.

If a vote tries to be started against them it could say something like "Playername is excluded from voting due to member status or server settings" or something along those lines.

Right now our only option is to at times turn the entire system off for the entire server which is unrealistic long term as its requires manual intervention all the time to manage.

Or just have the system ignore those votes and do nothing if the player has member status set.

Nah, it usually is just some butthurt newbie abusing the kick system. We do need that.
Agree, even see the odd admin voted on, while they never can be kicked if logged in, people will still role kick them over and over if they don't agree with a decision, we have started handing out long bans for these kinds of kicks on members now.

Having to turn off the voting on a daily basis with some people just spamming votes and abusing the system, going to end up permanently off at this rate.

This should be really easy to implement, as a server already has a list of members via Steam/EGS ID - so if an ID voted to kick matches one on that list then it should be ignored.
