Sorry if dumb question. I heard Nintendo are shutting down a few online things with the Wii such as the Everybody Votes the VC also on this list to make way for the Wii U VC?

I only used the VC for about a year, then I got into collecting the old consoles and carts. I recently got back into the VC because I can't afford/have the space for all these old games and I would like to know if I have a certain date by which I need to download what I want.

I highly doubt they'll take down the Wii VC. Nintendo is dumb, not suicidal.

Probably not, unless they plan on turning everybody's remaining Wii Points into eShop cash and releasing the entire Wii VC on the WiiU VC sometime soon.

I would say no to that question at this point. However, I see Nintendo dropping that service within the next 2-3 years though as they don't support old consoles for very long. They have this habit of killing their older hardware off almost immediately after a new one comes out.

This is true. They will take it down in June. Not the VC though:

They said the shop channel is not going to be shut down. Probably in the future it will, but not for now.
