Abstention

Abstention is a term in election procedure for when a participant in a vote either does not go to vote (on election day) or, in parliamentary procedure, is present during the vote, but does not cast a ballot. Abstention must be contrasted with “blank vote”, in which a voter casts a ballot willfully made invalid by marking it wrongly or by not marking anything at all.
