What do I need to know about voting?

The lot owners run strata schemes by exercising their right to vote on decisions in meetings. So, the right to vote, the extent of their vote and the kinds of decisions made are a key feature of lot ownership. Every state gives each lot one equal vote on basic decisions (if no poll is called or required). But some states limit the maximum number of votes a person can hold or the maximum number of proxies a person can hold. Usually it does not matter who holds the proxies but in Queensland letting managers are prevented from holding proxies and in New South Wales some kinds of proxies cannot be used by developers.
