The Proxy is (sometimes) the Ballot

James Davidson
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

The blog discusses how condominium owners can attend meetings by proxy and that the prescribed proxy form allows the proxy giver to include specific voting instructions on the form. If the proxy form includes specific instructions, the "proxy is the ballot" for those particular matters, and the person appointed as the proxy should not receive a ballot for those items. However, for all other business where the appointed proxy retains voting discretion, the person appointed as the proxy should be given ballot(s) and/or voting card(s) for that other business. The blog also touches upon the tricky question of how a specific voting instruction in a proxy form applies to a proposed By-law or Rule as amended at the meeting. One way to address this is for the voting instruction in the proxy form to say "in favour" or "opposed" with any amendments approved at the meeting.
