I don't know much about Servers but that looks fine to me.

Well, I see a big problem already. Depending upon your connection to the net (CABLE, DSL, ISDN, etc) that sv_maxrate is going to kill some of your users that are like dialup. Dial-up users maxrate is only 4,000 so they will be constantly pinging out, same with some ISDN users. Amidala from the Chop Shop knows the formula for setting the maxrate, course I just set mine to like 2,000 and it works great for all users.

And if you want an unlimited time limit, just set it to:
seta timelimit "0"

and you know you having voting enable, which will allow them to switch maps themselves, etc.
