With your proposal, the worst case scenario is: I make my choice (either
to vote or not to vote), the votes are tallied, I find out that my choice
caused my preferred option to be defeated by an option I ranked as less
desirable than default.
Now, clearly, we're talking about two different scenarios here (one
where you choose to vote, one where you choose not to vote). However,
until the votes are tallied, you can't know which scenario you're in.
