2018 Iowa Code
Section 504.716 - Cumulative voting for directors.

Universal Citation: IA Code § 504.716 (2018)


Cumulative voting for directors.

1. If the articles or bylaws of a corporation provide for cumulative voting by members, members may so vote, by multiplying the number of votes the members are entitled to cast by the number of directors for whom they are entitled to vote, and casting the product for a single candidate or distributing the product among two or more candidates.

2. A director elected by cumulative voting may be removed by the members without cause if the requirements of section 504.808 are met unless the votes cast against removal, or not consenting in writing to such removal, would be sufficient to elect such director if voted cumulatively at an election at which the same total number of votes were cast or, if such action is taken by written ballot, all memberships entitled to vote were voted, and the entire number of directors authorized at the time of the director’s most recent election were then being elected.

3. Members shall not cumulatively vote if the directors and members are identical.
