I had thought that this would trigger off of someone hitting submit on the
election page.  That should vote 0 for all candidates if no votes are
assigned but still meet the trigger condition.  Not sure if that meets the
criteria for objectors, though.  Ralph bean should weigh in here as to
whether "logged in during an election period" would also be suitable (which
was something that people seemed to think would be acceptable earlier in
the thread).
