BNN Bloomberg: Google Parent Moves to Majority Voting Approach for Directors

BNN Bloomberg: Google Parent Moves to Majority Voting Approach for Directors. “Going forward, members of the company’s directors will be elected by a majority vote, according to a company filing on [October 26]. The board approved the decision last week. Previously, Alphabet’s board operated on a plurality voting system — a director is elected if she gets more votes than opposing candidates. Since most board candidates run uncontested, this system virtually guaranteed the company’s choice.”
