I accidentally clicked reject on the suggested edit on this question( I can't find the button to change it to Approve?

EDIT: I'm making this a feature request so that people will be able to change their approval to rejection or vice-versa in the future. I just accidentally approved a bad edit myself and would like the ability to change it. - Lance Roberts

+1. I just had the same problem (except in reverse - I accidentally approved something that should've been rejected), so it was helpful to find the answer already waiting here. – nnnnnn Mar 6 '12 at 12:27

There is no undo at the moment, I always planned to have undo gmail style. But we have resisted complexity here. Once you have undo, you have to add a slew of checks prior to undoing.

On SO the community will pick up and approve if you just made a mistake. On other sites, you can go and manually apply the edit if this was an honest mistake.

I think we need the added complexity of an undo. Here's one example why – The Unhandled Exception Mar 15 '13 at 11:52
If there is going to be undo functionality, there should be a limited time period to exercise it. An editor might make future decisions based on whether a given edit is accepted or rejected. Regardless of the timeline, an editor should get clear feedback about a (rare) decision reversal like this. – A.M. Jun 16 '13 at 23:35
