15 Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes § 1764 - Voting Lists

§ 1764. Voting lists.

(a) General rule.--The officer or agent having charge of the transfer books for shares of a business corporation shall make a complete list of the shareholders entitled to vote at any meeting of shareholders, arranged in alphabetical order, with the address of and the number of shares held by each. This section does not require the corporation to include electronic mail addresses or other electronic contact information on the list. The list shall be produced and kept open at the time and place of each meeting of shareholders of a nonregistered corporation held at a geographic location and shall be subject to the inspection of any shareholder during the whole time of the meeting for the purposes thereof. See section 2529 (relating to voting lists).

(b) Effect of list.--Failure to comply with the requirements of this section shall not affect the validity of any action taken at a meeting prior to a demand at the meeting by any shareholder entitled to vote thereat to examine the list. The original share register or transfer book, or a duplicate thereof kept in this Commonwealth, shall be prima facie evidence as to who are the shareholders entitled to examine the list or share register or transfer book or to vote at any meeting of shareholders.

(c) Electronic meetings.--If a meeting of shareholders of a nonregistered corporation is not held at a geographic location, the corporation shall make the list of shareholders required by subsection (a) available in a reasonably accessible manner.
