Perhaps you could have a radiobutton that is labeled "no opinion" and make it hilited by default on opencard, then on mousedown in the slider, uncheck the button? Then if the user changes his/her mind and wants to vote "no opinion" s/he could check the button again and the slider could revert to 0 (you would ignore these values anyway).

I'm not sure how that might work and how visibility of the field could be used or possibly have it's "width" property set to "0", essentially making it invisible.
