Elections for Directors of a Corporation

Elections for Directors of a Corporation

The election of directors of a corporation must be held at the annual shareholders meeting by a “plurality of the votes cast at the election” unless the corporation’s articles of incorporation or bylaws require more than a plurality. NRS 78.330.  If for any reason directors are not elected pursuant to NRS 78.320 or at the annual meeting, they may be elected at any fairly noticed special meeting of the shareholders. NRS 78.330(1).    Moreover, shareholders owning at least 15% of the voting power may apply to the district court to order the election of directors if a corporation fails to hold a meeting within 18 months of its last meeting.  NRS 78.345(1).

 

Unless otherwise provided in the articles of incorporation or the bylaws, any action required or permitted to be taken at a meeting of the shareholders may be taken without a meeting “if, before or after the action, a written consent is signed by shareholders holding at least a majority of the voting power, except that if a different proportion of voting power is required for this action at a meeting, then that proportion of written consents is required.”  NRS 78.320.
