Full text
194. (1)  At any general meeting, unless a poll be demanded, a declaration by the chairman that a resolution has been carried, and an entry to that effect in the minutes of the company, shall be primafacie evidence of the fact, without proof of the number or proportion of the votes recorded in favour of or against such resolution.
(2)  If a poll is demanded it shall be taken in such manner as the by-laws prescribe, and, if the by-laws make no provision therefor, then as the chairman may direct.
(3)  Failing other provisions in that behalf in the charter or by-laws of the company, in the case of an equality of votes at any general meeting the chairman shall be entitled to a second or casting vote.
