I've recently purchased Resistance and I immediately bought sleeves for the cards to make sure that they last. One thing I've been worrying about is the game boards, they are of fairly flimsy card stock and might easily get damaged. Has anyone got any tips on how to protect the boards from wear and tear?

You could laminate them.

That's what I was thinking - they are certainly thin enough.

If you want to avoid lamination because you want to be able to take the boards out at some point, you can look into file pockets (at least, I think that's what they're called - they're clear plastic self-adhesive envelopes that don't adhere to their contents) from an office supply store. They may have some that are appropriately sized for the boards, or you can just buy them as 8x10.

Failing that, sheet protectors.

The first time I played this game, one of the players must have been rubbing the accept/reject token constantly, because he rubbed quite a bit of the color of them and they showed the white specs under them.

I was a bit miffed... but also surprised that after one play of handling that they could get like that.

Exactly the same thing happened to my copy of the game. After one game night all accept/reject tokens that had been used show signs of wear, but two of them much more than the others. Absolutely crap quality, especially considering the importance of not being able to tell these tokens apart (until the vote has been made public). I guess I will use go-like black and white stones for this voting instead (being held in the closed hands of the players until everyone has decided how to vote).
