The Corporate Laws Committee has approved the changes described in this report on second reading and invites comments from interested persons. Section 7.29 deals with the role of inspectors of election in the shareholdervoting process. That process and the role of inspectors of election have changed in recent years, at least in the case of public corporations, with the increase in“street name” holdings, the use of a securities depositary system and involvementof intermediaries, and the resulting increased role of vote tabulators. The proposed changes are intended to update the provisions on inspectors of election to reflect what inspectors of election in fact do under the current shareholder voting system. Section 7.24, dealing with acceptance of votes and other instruments relating to shareholder voting, is proposed to be changed to better conform to and coordinate with new section 7.29. The Official Comment to section 7.29 also has been streamlined, principally by eliminating the examples relating to acceptance and rejection of proxy appointments. These examples are expected to be included in the Historical Background commentary to section 7.29 in the Model Business Corporation Act Annotated. Section 7.22, dealing with proxies, is proposed to be changed to more accurately reflect the term of proxy appointments, including irrevocable proxy appointments.
