2007 ORS 62.195¹
Voting by shareholders

(1) A shareholder may vote either in person or by proxy executed in writing by the shareholder or by the duly authorized attorney-in-fact of the shareholder. No proxy shall be valid after 11 months from the date of its execution unless otherwise provided in the proxy. The following provisions, relating to voting of shares, apply to shareholders of cooperatives and shares of the capital stock of cooperatives other than membership stock:

(a) Shares standing in the name of another domestic or foreign cooperative may be voted by such officer, agent or proxy as the bylaws of the cooperative may prescribe, or, in the absence of such provision, as the board of directors of the cooperative may determine.

(b) An administrator, executor, guardian or conservator holding shares may vote the shares, either in person or by proxy, without a transfer of such shares into the name of the administrator, executor, guardian or conservator. Shares standing in the name of a trustee may be voted by the trustee, either in person or by proxy, but no trustee shall be entitled to vote shares held by the trustee without a transfer of the shares into the trustee’s name.

(c) Shares standing in the name of a receiver may be voted by the receiver, and shares held by or under control of a receiver may be voted by the receiver without the transfer thereof into the receiver’s name if authority so to do is contained in an appropriate order of the court by which the receiver was appointed.

(d) A shareholder whose shares are pledged shall be entitled to vote the shares until the shares have been transferred into the name of the pledgee, and thereafter the pledgee shall be entitled to vote the shares so transferred.

(3) For the purpose of determining shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at meetings, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend, the bylaws may fix in advance a date as the record date for any such determination of shareholders. Such date shall be not more than 50 days and not less than 10 days prior to the date on which the particular action requiring such determination of shareholders is to be taken. If no such record date is fixed by the bylaws, the date on which notice of the meeting is mailed or the date on which the resolution of the board of directors declaring such dividend is adopted, as the case may be, shall be the record date for such determination of shareholders. When a determination of shareholders entitled to vote at any meeting has been made as provided in this section, such determination shall apply to any adjournment of that meeting.
