Reminder To Shareholders To Vote In Fonterra Elections
Final Reminder To Shareholders To Vote In Fonterra Elections
With less than one week of voting remaining in Fonterra’s elections, about 30 percent of votes have already been cast.
Voting closes at midday on Tuesday 10 October 2006 and time now only allows for shareholders to vote by fax or internet.
“I would like to remind shareholders to take this opportunity to exercise their right to vote as soon as possible and have a say,” says Returning Officer Warwick Lampp.
“Any shareholder who has lost or has not received their voting pack, should contact me immediately for a replacement on the Election Hotline – 0508 666 446.”
On-line secure voting through Fencepost.com is being used again this year with internet voting proving to be more popular than voting by fax. “On-line voting is a better option for those last minute voters as it doesn’t delay the counting,” says Mr Lampp.
There are elections for three Directors from five candidates as well as a Shareholders’ Council election in Ward 23 Canterbury South.
Election results will be announced by the Chairman of the Board of Directors at Fonterra’s Annual Meeting in Invercargill on Wednesday 11 October 2006. All shareholders will be advised of the election results in a letter from the Board Chair.
Any queries regarding the election should be directed to the Election Hotline on 0508 666 446.
