“Mobile ProxyVote is easy to use,” explained Joseph Vicari, vice president, business strategy and development, Broadridge. “There is no software to download and no fee for the corporate or mutual fund issuer or the shareholder. All a shareholder needs to do is access ProxyVote.com from their mobile device and simply vote.”

Twenty million proxy votes were recorded through the Broadridge ProxyVote.com platform for the 12 months ending June 2010. ProxyVote offers “street name” and registered shareowners, as well as 401(k), ESOP and ESPP participants, the convenience of voting their shares on the Internet, and now with the introduction of Mobile ProxyVote, through compatible mobile devices.

The initial product announcement was made at Broadridge’s annual Investor Communications Conference in December 2010, which attracted hundreds of top executives from the nation’s leading financial services firms, institutional investors and corporate issuers.
