The thing with shares and voting rights is not straight forward though. Often only certain aspects of a companies dealings can be voted on and having more shares gives a bigger entitlement regarding votes.
What is a Voting Right
A voting right is the right of shareholders to vote on matters of corporate policy, including decisions on the makeup of the board of directors, issuing securities, initiating corporate actions and making substantial changes in the corporation's operations. It is common for shareholders to voice their vote by proxy by mailing in their response or by relinquishing their vote to a third party. Unlike the single vote right that individuals commonly possess in democratic governments, the number of votes a shareholder has corresponds to the number of shares he or she owns.
