Voting rights are the ability of a shareholder of a corporation to vote his shares in electing members of the board of directors, or in deciding any issue that comes before the shareholders, usually in the annual meeting of shareholders. Usually each share of common stock has one voting right, but shares with no voting rights or super voting rights (more than one vote per share) are issued by some corporations.
