1 A broker non-vote occurs when a broker, bank or other nominee holding shares for a beneficial owner does not vote on a particular proposal because the nominee does not have discretionary voting power with respect to the item and has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner of the shares it holds.  Broker non-votes are counted when determining whether the necessary quorum of stockholders is present or represented at each annual meeting.
