The payoffs are:
|You Vote||You Stay Home|
|They Vote||You each have the hassle of voting, your candidates relative rankings are unchanged.||They have the hassle of voting, their candiate goes up by one.|
|They Stay Home||You have the hassle of voting, your candiate goes up by one||Both get to not vote, rankings are unchanged.|
I'm not actually interested in how people would answer this; I like it as an alternate statement of the Prisoner's dilemma. Voting is 'defecting', staying home is 'cooperating'.
