Shareholder Voting: Straight vs. Cumulative

This lesson discusses cumulative voting and how it differs from straight voting. It describes the mechanics of cumulative voting—how many votes each shareholder gets, how those votes may be cast, and how the result is determined. It also illustrates how cumulative voting can go awry if shareholders are not careful. Finally, it discusses several possible ways that a majority shareholder dissatisfied with cumulative voting may try to circumvent it.
