Voting your proxy is easier than you think
When there are topics that are up for a shareholder vote, all shareholders should receive proxy instructions and a proxy voting card or Voting Instruction Form (VIF) either via US postal mail or email. Companies may also make proxy materials available online, usually on the investor relations page of their website.
“If you can’t attend a shareholder meeting in person, your proxy vote is the way to have your voice heard.”
