Voting rights on shares generally refers to the entitlement of shareholders to participate in the decision-making process of a company, such as electing the board of directors or approving mergers or acquisitions.
Whether you own whole or fractional shares, you'll have voting rights. However, to be eligible to vote, you'll need to hold the security as of the security's record date.
While voting rights provide an avenue for shareholders to voice opinions and influence decision-making, the extent of your influence may vary based on the size of your shareholding and the specific voting structure of the company.
You can generally find more information in the 'investor relations' section of a company's website.
