There's an option on your user settings page to turn on the Null vote, which is exactly like you asked for (in the Miscellaneous section).

local $_ = "0A72656B636148206C72655020726568746F6E41207473754A"; while(s/..$//) { print chr(hex($&)) }

    Does this not use up a vote though? I don't want to use a vote, I just want to change my mind about voting on that particular node. BTW, I'm sorry about the title - I used "s and didnt' check the title on the preview.
      No, it does not use a vote, nor make it impossible for you to vote on the node in the future. It just acts as a 'reset' for the node vote. This should be mentioned on the Voting/Experience System node although I don't think it is.

      Update: Oops, too slow.

        excellent, thank you both.
      No it doesn't it's a null vote, If you turn the option on, it will be selected by default on all nodes you haven't previously voted on (when you have votes available).

      It's to allow easy changing of your mind and was introduced to solve exactly the problem you described.
