BASKING RIDGE, NJ – Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq: VZ) has announced preliminary results of the shareholder vote at its annual meeting, which was held today in a virtual-only format.

Verizon’s shareholders elected each of Verizon’s 10 directors to a one-year term. Shareholders also voted in favor of two management proposals:

  • Approved the compensation of the company’s named executive officers as described in the 2024 proxy statement; and

  • Ratified the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as the company’s independent registered public accounting firm.

All seven shareholder proposals were defeated: prohibit political contributions study; expand disclosure of the company’s lobbying activities; amend executive compensation clawback policy; adopt an independent chair policy; issue a report regarding civil liberties in digital services; issue a lead-sheathed cable report; and report annually on the alignment of political expenditures with company strategy and values.

Vote tallies are considered preliminary until the final results are tabulated and certified by independent inspectors of election. The final results will be posted on Verizon’s website at www.verizon.com/about/investors.
