See web address 1 below for the LSJ entry on this word. It gives two instances: (i) from Aristophanes, Wasps 752, where an apsephistos is a juror who has not yet cast his vote, and (ii) from the Sententiae of Secundus (C2 CE), where poverty which is figuratively speaking not-voted-for is unwelcome. The present quotation (repeated at psi 83) seems more akin to i than to ii, but the object is impersonal, and the overall import obscure.
