The filing requirements for Form N-PX are covered under Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940, and Sections 13 and 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which require investment companies and trusts to file semiannual and annual reports with the SEC and shareholders.

Individuals should always be able to view a registered investment company's proxy voting record, by either accessing or requesting the information directly from the company or through the SEC's website.

By federal law, companies are required to provide their proxy voting records, free of charge, within three days of receiving a request.
