Proxy vote

Postby belgiangoth » 6 Apr 2016, 3:07pm

Hi,

I'm looking to send in my vote. I need to nominate a proxy so that all other items do not become additional chairman votes.

Anyone going?

I think I noticed a new online option for the AGM motions which is a step forward.

Why would you not give your proxy vote to the Chairman?
Is it not the case that if you choose the Chair to be your proxy, he/she must use the votes as instructed by you?
It is, I believe, only if you give your proxy no specific instruction that they will use their own discretion in placing the vote.

it sends a signal to the chair and the council if a ctc member say at the AGM that they are voting on behalf a large number of ctc members, i am just offering my self, you can choice who you like. i just do not want the chair to have a load of free votes.
