Cumulative Voting

Business / Taxes / Cumulative Voting: With this method of voting for a corporation's board of directors, you may cast the total number of votes you're entitled to any way you choose. Generally, you receive one for each share of company stock you own times the number of directors to be elected. For example, you can either split your votes equally among the nominees, or you can cast all of them for a single candidate. Cumulative voting is designed to give individual stockholders greater influence in shaping the board. They can designate all their votes for a single candidate who represents their interest instead of spreading their votes equally among the candidates, as is the case with statutory voting.
