I came across a question in the close queue, which I feel need to provide some more information in order to be a good question.

I could vote to close the question, but I can see that the question already has three votes for migration to stackoverflow. Based on my understanding of how close votes work, this means that if I vote for closing I am effectively voting in favor of migrating the question to stackoverflow - regardless of what reason I choose when voting to close.

How should I vote if I don't feel that question is suitable for migration to stackoverflow?

You should still vote to close. Other people's votes are not your responsibility. All you can do is vote correctly.

Certainly, disagreeing with a close vote isn't a valid reason to flag, for example.
