A Corporate Proxy (which can also be called a Proxy Form or Proxy Agreement) is a document by which a stockholder in a corporation (a person that holds stock or shares in a corporation) gives their right to vote their shares to someone else, called a proxy. A Corporate Proxy is a rather simple document, but needs to be notarized, which means going to an official person called a "Notary Public" to witness the signature, in order to be considered valid. When you can't be present at a shareholders meeting, you can create a Corporate Proxy allowing you to have another person represent you and vote on your behalf. You'll typically want to give a Corporate Proxy to another stockholder, and for a limited period of time. Your dated Corporate Proxy should include details like: the name of the corporation; the owner of the stock; who will be given authority to represent the stockholder (also called ?the proxy?); when the proxy's authority will take effect; whether you wish to direct your proxy how to vote on certain issues; and the issues on which the proxy's vote will be limited. Finally, make sure a witness is present for the signing, since this proxy is essentially a Special Power of Attorney.
