"Time to End Proxy Vote Monopoly: Opinion," TheStreet, October 20, 2010

The Securities and Exchange Commission has been very busy over the last few months with concept releases and new proposed rules.  So, lost amidst this activity, you might not have realized that today is the deadline for comments about proposed changes to the proxy system.  Before your eyes glaze over, let me say that it's actually a very good thing.  And, unlike most situations, there is one proposed change under consideration on which both investors and public companies are in complete agreement: ending the monopoly enjoyed by Broadridge for counting proxy votes.
