Voting for someone else at a shareholders meeting is called "proxy voting." The power of attorney to vote by proxy for someone at a shareholders meeting is called a "proxy card" or, also, a "proxy form" or "proxy ballot".

DEFINITION of 'Proxy Vote'

A ballot cast by one person on behalf of another. One of the benefits of being a shareholder is the right to vote on on certain corporate matters. Since most shareholders cannot or do not want to attend the annual and special meetings at which the voting occurs, corporations provide shareholders with the option to cast a proxy vote. Shareholders receive a proxy ballot in the mail along with an informational booklet called a proxy statement describing the issues to be voted on. Shareholders return a form by mail agreeing to have their vote cast by proxy.
