Q: What is Proxy Voting?


Mutual Funds may hold special meetings of shareholders to seek approval of changes to fund services or policies that require shareholder approval. As a shareholder, you are entitled to vote on these important matters. You could, if you wanted, attend the shareholder meeting to cast your vote, or you could cast a proxy vote, which allows you to cast your vote through the mail, over the telephone, or online. This way, your vote can be counted without you having to attend the meeting.

Q: When will I receive the information I need to vote?


A proxy statement, which provides details regarding the meeting and the management and shareholder proposals, if any, that will be voted on at the meeting, is provided to shareholders before the meeting is held. The proxy statement may be sent to you via U.S. mail, or email, if you have consented to electronic delivery, or you may receive a notice linking you to a website where you can review it online.

Q: How can I submit a proxy vote?


You may submit a proxy vote through U.S. mail, over the telephone, or online, based on the instructions contained in the proxy statement. Votes must be submitted prior to the close of voting in order to be counted. Please vote your shares promptly. Your vote is extremely important, no matter how large or small your holdings may be. Please note, online and telephone voting is available up until 11:59 PM EST on the day prior to the scheduled meeting. In order to vote on the day of the meeting, you must attend the meeting.

Q: I consented for eDelivery of proxy materials, is it possible to receive hard copy paper materials instead?


By consenting to eDelivery, you have agreed to online receipt of important proxy materials. You can request a written copy of the proxy materials by clicking on "Request copy of shareholder materials," on the same screen you are prompted to vote your shares. To request a written copy of any Fidelity Advisor Fund or Fidelity Fund proxy material via telephone, please call 877-208-0098. If you would like to change your eDelivery preferences for future proxy materials, click here to update your information or change your delivery method.

Q: I used to enter a control number when voting proxy, why is this now no longer required?


By using institutional.fidelity.com to access the online voting site, a secure transaction with your control number information has been established and the control number is no longer required to securely complete this transaction.

Q: I voted and I would like to change my vote, is this possible?


Yes, you can vote again using the "Voted" link in the "Action" column as long as voting is still open for that holding. The latest vote cast will be recorded and the "Last Action Taken" date will update. If you do not complete the process of re-voting, the last vote cast remains on record.
