If a quorum of a voting group shall not be present or represented at
any meeting, the shares entitled to vote thereat shall have power to adjourn
the meeting to a different date, time or place without notice other than
announcement at the meeting of the new time, date or place to which the meeting
is adjourned. At any adjourned meeting at which a quorum of any voting group
shall be present or represented, any business may be transacted by such voting
group which might have been transacted at the meeting as originally called.
2.8 VOTING OF SHARES.
Unless otherwise provided by the Act or the Charter, each outstanding
share is entitled to one (1) vote on each matter voted on at a shareholders'
meeting. Only shares are entitled to vote. If a quorum exists, approval of
action on a matter (other than the election of directors) by a voting group
entitled to vote thereon is received if the votes cast within the voting group
favoring the action exceed the votes cast opposing the action, unless the
Charter or the Act requires a greater number of affirmative votes. Unless
otherwise provided in the Charter, directors are elected by a plurality of the
votes cast by the shares entitled to vote in the election at a meeting at which
a quorum is present.
A shareholder may vote his or her shares in person or by proxy. A
shareholder may appoint a proxy to vote or otherwise act for him or her by
signing an appointment either personally or through an attorney-in-fact. An
appointment of a proxy is effective when received by the Secretary or other
officer or agent authorized to tabulate votes. An appointment is valid for
eleven (11) months unless another period is expressly provided in the
appointment form. An appointment of a proxy is revocable by the shareholder
unless the appointment form conspicuously states that it is irrevocable and the
appointment is coupled with an interest.
