Shareholder Vote

An election in a corporation in which all shareholders may participate. Shareholder votes are most often associated with electing directors and setting company policies at the annual meeting of shareholders. In order to be able to vote, one must hold voting stock. The right to vote gives the holder of voting stock a great deal of control over the company.
