A proxy is a special form prescribed by the Regulations to make sure your personal vote counts even when not attending the meeting. Note: in a large scheme the proxy form must be in 24 hours before the meeting. (sch 2, part 2, clause 11). Otherwise present your proxy at the meeting prior to the meeting commencing. If you are the owner of a lot, subject to a mortgage or charge shown on the strata roll, you may only vote if the mortgagee or chargee does not exercise a vote, having given you two days notice of their intention to exercise a vote. You may only vote on a motion for an ordinary or special resolution if all contributions levied by the Owners Corporation in respect of your lot or any other monies outstanding, at the date of this notice, have been duly paid before the commencement of the meeting.
