Do Corporate Directors’ Voting Rights Depend on the Number of Shares They Own?

Logo for Quora, the source for a question about corporate directors' voting rights

This post about corporate directors’ voting rights is based on a question that I answered recently both for a client and on Quora. Q. Do corporate directors’ voting rights depend on the number of shares they own?

A. No. Board members typically have equal voting rights. However, some states allow directors to have unequal voting rights. See, e.g., Delaware General Corporation Law Section 141(d).
