The company's new majority vote standard requires each nominee for election to the board to receive a majority of the votes cast to be elected to the board. Previously, under a plurality standard, candidates receiving the most votes were elected, regardless of whether those votes constituted a majority. Plurality voting still will apply in contested elections, where the number of director candidates exceeds the number of director positions available.
