63.          Method of Voting

 

At any general meeting a resolution put to the vote of the meeting shall be decided on a show of hands unless (before or on the declaration of the result of the show of hands) a poll is demanded.  Subject to the Companies Acts, a poll may be demanded by:-

 

(i)            the chairman of the meeting; or

 

(ii)           at least three members present in person or by proxy and entitled to vote on the resolution; or

 

(iii)          any member or members present in person or by proxy and representing in the aggregate not less than one-tenth of the total voting rights of all the members having the right to vote on the resolution; or

 

(iv)          any member or members present in person or by proxy and holding shares conferring a right to vote on the resolution on which there have been paid up sums in the aggregate equal to not less than one-tenth of the total sum paid up on all the shares conferring that right.

 

The chairman of the meeting can also demand a poll before a resolution is put to the vote on a show of hands.

 

Unless a poll is so demanded and the demand is not withdrawn, a declaration by the chairman of the meeting that a resolution on a show of hands has been carried or carried unanimously or by a particular majority or not carried by a particular majority or lost shall be conclusive evidence of the fact without proof of the number or proportion of the votes recorded for or against the resolution.
