Ballot

A document on which a shareholder records his/her preference for a decision, especially in elections for the board of directors. The ballot may represent one vote per shareholder, but more commonly, it represents one vote per share, giving persons and companies with more shares greater say. Ballots may be filled electronically, over the phone, or in person on paper. They are used at the annual meeting of shareholders and other meetings the company may call. See also: Proxy Ballot.
