This excerpt taken from the NVDA DEF 14A filed May 9, 2007.
A majority of the shares present, in person or represented by proxy and entitled to vote at the annual meeting must vote FOR the 2007 Plan for it to be adopted. Abstentions will be counted toward the tabulation of votes cast on proposals presented to the stockholders and will have the same effect as negative votes. Broker non-votes are counted towards a quorum, but are not counted for any purpose in determining whether this matter has been approved. The 2007 Plan will not go into effect if our stockholders do not vote FOR approval of the 2007 Plan. Please vote as soon as possible.
