Proxy Committee Ballot

The ballot that the proxy committee of a publicly-traded company completes at the annual meeting. The proxy committee is appointed by the board of directors to vote on behalf of shareholders who have given proxy to the board. The proxy committee does not necessarily have the discretion to vote as it wishes; it must vote as the shareholders who have given it proxy intend.
