The Christian and the Vote: What is the theological significance?

A recently released book out by Cascade Books is entitled Electing Not to Vote: Christian Reflections on Reasons for Not Voting (Eugene, OR: Cascade Books, 2008). What is a Christian to do?

Conversely, is electing not vote tantamount to the retreat of fundamentalism into the "holy huddle?" Why or why not?
