§ 7-4-3. Voting on stock held by fiduciaries and pledgees.

A person holding stock in a fiduciary capacity is entitled to vote the stock. In the case of stock held jointly by two (2) or more executors, administrators, guardians, conservators, trustees, or other fiduciaries, the fiduciaries may designate, in writing, one or more of their number to represent the stock and vote it, unless there is a provision to the contrary in any instrument defining their powers and duties. A person whose stock is pledged is entitled to vote the stock until the stock is transferred on the books of the corporation to the pledgee, and subsequently the pledgee is entitled to vote the stock.
