Background and History
Shareholders in companies often have difficulty in voting their shares at General Meetings of companies. This can be because you have not been sent a paper proxy voting form, or the shares are held in a nominee account and your stockbroker does not provide a simple way to provide them with voting instructions. The forms below can be used in those circumstances:
Proxy Voting Form
Use this form if your shares are held in the form of a paper share certificate or you are a personal crest member (i.e. you are on the share register of the company):
Proxy-Voting-Form (click on to access)
Print the form, complete it and post it to the company’s registrar.
Proxy Voting Form Nominee
Use the following form if your shares are held in a nominee account by a stockbroker:
Proxy-Voting-Form-Nominee (click on to access)
Print the form, complete it and post it to your stockbroker (or scan the completed document and send it to them via email or via their message service).
Note that some registrars have stopped printing their postal address on the Notices of Meetings. The following are the main UK share registrars and their addresses. There are a few companies that act as their own registrars in which case the proxy voting form should be sent to the Company Secretary.
