One of your key rights as a shareholder is the right to vote the shares of the companies in which you invest. Shareholder voting rights give you the power to elect directors at annual or special meetings and make your views known to the company management and directors on significant issues that may affect the value of your shares. Shareholders usually participate in these meetings and elections through proxy voting.
