Frequently Asked Questions

Employee Stockholders’ Guide to Voting on Annual Meeting Proposals

What is proxy voting?

Voting by proxy allows stockholders to voice their opinion on important issues that will be considered at Allstate’s annual stockholder meeting without having to participate in the meeting. Stockholders can vote in advance on the matters to be considered during the meeting.

Why are stockholders’ votes gathered this way?

Voting by proxy is a common practice among publicly traded companies because it allows stockholders to express their opinion without having to participate in the company’s annual meeting. Widely-held companies like Allstate have stockholders around the world; voting by proxy is a more convenient way to vote shares on proposals.

Why do stockholders have a vote?

When someone has an investment interest in Allstate or another company’s stock, they have a financial stake in its success. Our annual stockholder meeting and vote give stockholders an important opportunity to voice their opinion on the election of the board of directors and other governance matters.

Through the annual meeting process, employee stockholders have an opportunity to influence the company’s corporate governance by voting their shares, just as they help to drive Allstate’s success through the work they do every day.

Why is Allstate encouraging me to vote?

Every vote matters, including those of our employee stockholders. All stockholders – including employees – are encouraged to vote.

Why is Allstate providing more information about the annual meeting and vote?

It is important for employee stockholders to understand the issues and add their voices to the dialogue. The proxy vote process and issues up for vote can be confusing, and we don’t want that to discourage employee stockholders from participating. As with any significant decision, it is important to gather the facts and feel comfortable with the process.

To help, Allstate offers an overview of proposals that provides more information about the issues. This resource is meant to help employees feel comfortable with the voting process and issues up for vote.


What issues are up for vote in 2022?

Allstate stockholders will be asked to vote on governance items, including the election of the board of directors. More information is available in the Notice of 2022 Annual Meeting and Proxy Statement.

Please review this information before voting. The items up for vote are:

1. Election of 11 directors

2. Say-on-pay — advisory vote to approve the compensation of the named executives

3. Ratification of auditors — ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as Allstate's independent registered public accountant for 2022

How can I vote?

Employees who own shares of Allstate stock will receive a notice that the proxy materials and voting instructions are available. Most of these employee stockholders will begin receiving it by email during the week of April 11, while others will receive the email from their broker. Some employees may receive materials by postal mail if they previously selected this delivery option.

In either case, stockholders may vote by following the instructions in the materials.

How do I set my delivery preferences for proxy materials?

Each year, an Allstate NOW article is published to remind employees that they can opt out of electronic delivery of proxy materials. However, employees can change their election at any time by following the processes set forth in the materials they receive.

Will Allstate leaders or employees know how I vote?

No. Allstate has a confidential voting policy that applies to all votes cast, including employee votes. All votes are confidential and managed by an outside firm to maintain confidentiality, except as necessary to allow the inspector of election to certify the vote result or meet certain legal requirements. The votes are tabulated by an independent outside vendor, and the results are certified by an independent inspector of election. However, if a stockholder provides a comment on his or her ballot, and knowing the vote is important to understand the comment, then the comment and the vote may be disclosed to the corporate secretary.


What happens if I don’t vote?

Stockholders who decide not to vote will miss an opportunity to voice their opinion. However, the decision about whether to vote will not affect their status as an Allstate stockholder. The trustee of the Allstate 401(k) Savings Plan, The Northern Trust Corp., will vote any shares not voted by plan participants. If less than 50 percent of shares held by participants are voted, the trustee would use its sole discretion to vote unvoted shares. If at least 50 percent of the shares held by participants are voted, the trustee would vote all other shares in the same proportion and in the same manner as the shares that have been voted, unless to do so would be inconsistent with the trustee’s duties.

When will the annual meeting take place? Can I attend?

The annual meeting is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 24, 2022. Similar to last year, the annual meeting will be held in a virtual “audio only” meeting format. You will not be able to attend the meeting physically, although all stockholders are encouraged to participate virtually. To be admitted to the annual meeting at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ALL2022, you must enter the 16-digit control number found on your proxy card, voting instruction form or notice of Internet availability. You may begin to log into the meeting platform beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Participants in the Allstate 401(k) Savings Plan may participate in the meeting, but may not vote the shares credited to their accounts during the meeting. All voting instructions for shares in the Allstate 401(k) Savings Plan must be received by May 19, 2022, so the trustee can tabulate and vote the shares.


Commencing on or about April 11, 2022, The Allstate Corporation will make the following intranet webpage available to employees:

Understanding the 2022 Proposals

Employee Stockholders’ Guide to Voting on Annual Meeting Proposals

Each year, Allstate stockholders are asked to consider and vote on proposals related to important governance matters. Some of the issues can be challenging to understand. The 2022 proposals are listed below, followed by explanations to help you understand the matters up for vote.

The proxy statement and the descriptions below provide the vote recommendation of the Allstate board of directors. These recommendations are based on the board’s view of what is best for stockholders and the corporation. Please review the proxy statement and annual report before voting. The board recommends you vote “FOR” each director and Proposals 2 and 3.

Proposal 1 – Election of 11 directors

Who are the directors of The Allstate Corporation?

The Allstate Corporation has 11 nominees for election as directors at the 2022 annual meeting. Ten of the directors are independent from Allstate, which means they are not Allstate employees and have no relationships with the company that would create a conflict of interest that would impair independence. Tom Wilson, chair, president, and CEO, is the only Allstate employee on the board. For more information, see the biographies of the board members, beginning on page 20 of the 2022 proxy statement.

Why do we vote to elect our board of directors every year?

Allstate’s practice of electing each director every year is considered good governance, as it allows stockholders the opportunity to vote on each director’s continued service annually.

What is the vote standard required to elect an Allstate director?

Each Allstate director must receive a majority of affirmative or “for” votes out of the votes cast. Some companies apply a plurality vote standard, which means a director can be elected by less than a majority of votes cast.

Proposal 2 – Say-on-pay – advisory vote to approve the compensation of the named executives

Why do stockholders get to vote on executive compensation?

The Dodd-Frank Act required public companies to provide stockholders with the opportunity to cast an advisory vote on the company’s executive compensation program for named executive officers. The vote is nonbinding, but it gives stockholders an opportunity to voice any concerns about a company’s executive compensation program. Allstate’s compensation and human capital committee (a committee of the board) takes the stockholder vote into consideration when it conducts its annual review of the compensation program.


How does the board of directors determine executive compensation?

The compensation and human capital committee of the board of directors works with an independent compensation consultant to design an executive compensation program that aligns compensation with the company’s strategic and operational business goals. In designing such a program, the committee examines market pay and practices at a group of peer companies and uses the 50th percentile of this peer group as a guideline in setting target direct compensation. To read more about this, see the 2022 proxy statement.

Proposal 3 – Ratification of auditors – ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as Allstate’s independent registered public accountant for 2022

Why do we vote to ratify the auditors?

The audit committee of the board of directors annually appoints an independent registered public accounting firm. Stockholders are asked to ratify the appointment. If the appointment is not ratified by stockholders, the committee may reconsider which accounting firm to appoint. The proxy statement contains details on the fees paid to Deloitte & Touche LLP for 2021 and 2020.
