M&S chairman calls for electronic AGM voting

A show of hands could be a thing of the past, according to M&S chairman Paul Myners 

Shareholders voting by hand at AGMs should be a thing of the past, according
to Marks & Spencer chairman Paul Myners.

Instead, Myners, in a report released today, thought that all votes at
shareholder meetings should be taken by electronic poll.

‘Private shareholders tend to regard voting by a show of hands as very
important,’ Myners said in the Daily Telegraph.

He added that electronic voting was a better way of registering investor
sentiment.
