Proxy voting is the practice of allowing a senator to cast a vote in committee for an absent Senator. Senate Rule XXVI provides that proxies may not be voted when the absent Senator has not been informed of the matter on which he is being recorded and has not requested that he be so recorded.[1]

In addition, the term refers to the solicitation, obtainer, and casting of votes at a shareholder's meeting by "proxy," meaning that the shareholder does not actually appear, but vests authority to cast votes in a particular manner with either the board of directors, or alternative "proxy slate" candidates.
