A recent report found that shareholders usually ignore proxy statements. One way to improve corporate governance is to vote. The Motley Fool could play a part in improving corporate governance by encouraging its readers to vote their proxies. One way to do this is to discuss, in the daily Fool e-mails, how the Fool will vote its proxies for the stocks it owns in the Rule Maker port. This regularly exposure to annual meeting issues and voting discussion would make readers more familiar and comfortable with voting so that eventually we will stop throwing away those proxies and regard it as normal and even a responsibility to vote them.
