(805 ILCS 35/13) (from Ch. 32, par. 1013)
Sec. 13. The first annual meeting shall be held as soon as practicable after the issuance of a certificate of incorporation. The first and subsequent annual meetings of stockholders and members shall be called as provided in the bylaws of the corporation.
At the first annual meeting, and at annual meetings thereafter the directors shall be elected by vote of the stockholders. At all meetings, annual or special, for whatever purpose held, stockholders shall have one vote for each share of stock owned. When voting in elections for directors every stockholder shall have the right to vote, in person or by proxy, for the number of shares of stock owned by him, for as many persons as there are directors to be elected, or to cumulate such shares, and give one candidate as many votes as the number of directors multiplied by the number of his shares of stock shall equal, or to distribute them on the same principle among as many candidates as he shall think fit.
