(2) provide a specifically designated blank space for dating the proxy; and

(3) provide a means for the shareholder to specify by boxes a choice between approval or disapproval of each matter or group of related matters identified in the proxy as intended to be acted upon, other than the election of directors.

(d) A proxy may confer authority for matters on which a choice is not made by the shareholder if the proxy discloses how the shares represented by the proxy will be voted in each case.

(1) set out the names of the nominees for whom the proxy is solicited; and

(2) clearly provide one of the following:

(B) an instruction that the shareholder may withhold authority to vote for a nominee by lining through or otherwise striking out the name of that nominee;

(C) a "ballot" type of selection in which the shareholder is permitted to award votes to selected nominees of the shareholder's choosing.

(1) matters which the persons making the solicitation do not know, a reasonable time before the solicitation, are to be presented at the meeting;

(2) approval of the minutes of the prior meeting if the approval does not amount to ratification of the action taken at that meeting;

(3) the election of a person to an office for which a bona fide nominee is named in the proxy statement and the nominee is unable to serve or for good cause will not serve;

(4) a proposal omitted from the proxy statement and proxy, if solicited for an annual meeting by participants other than the board; or
