17:9A-90. Voting in person or by proxy
A. Stockholders of a bank may vote at all meetings either in person or by proxy. Every proxy shall be executed in writing by the stockholder or his agent and shall be filed with the secretary or cashier of the bank. When a proxy is executed by an agent of a stockholder, the instrument authorizing the agent to execute the proxy, or a photostatic copy thereof, shall also be filed with the secretary or cashier of the bank.
B. No proxy shall be valid after eleven months from the date of its execution, unless a longer time is expressly provided therein, but in no event shall a proxy be valid after three years from the date of its execution. If a proxy is undated, it shall be presumed to be dated as of the date on which it is filed pursuant to this section.
C. A proxy shall be revocable at will, but its revocation shall not be effective until written notice of such revocation is filed with the secretary or cashier of the bank. A proxy shall not be revoked by the death or incapacity of the stockholder until written notice of such death or incapacity shall be filed with the secretary or cashier of the bank. Unless the by-laws otherwise provide, the presence at any meeting of any stockholder who has given a proxy shall not revoke such proxy unless the stockholder shall file written notice of such revocation with the secretary of the meeting.
D. Nothing in this section shall limit the period of validity of a proxy or permit its revocation contrary to its terms, if such proxy is coupled with an interest.
E. While a meeting of the stockholders is in progress, the filing with the secretary or cashier of the bank required by subsections A and C of this section shall be made with the secretary of the meeting.
