What type of voting are you doing?
Basically, if you cast a proxy vote, you sign a form allowing someone else to vote for you. Typically, the form will indicate which side of the issues you support, so you authorize a like-minded person to vote for you.
Let me know if that makes sense. Would you prefer for me to transfer this question to our Legal category for a legal opinion? If not, and this is what you were looking for, thanks for pressing "Accept".
