How does my WI cast our vote?
Your WI gets one vote for the resolution which is either for or against. Your WI can also choose to give your delegate the discretion to decide how to vote at the Annual Meeting, after hearing the presentations and debate about the resolution.
Abstentions do not count
Only votes cast for and against the resolutions will be counted, in accordance with the voting procedure set out in the NFWI Memorandum and Articles of Association. Abstaining means that a delegate would not cast a vote, and therefore this abstention would not be counted.
