Swift stockholders also approved a proposal to authorize the issuance of 2 million additional shares of common stock under Swift's 1999 Stock Option Plan and elected Jerry Moyes, Alphonse E. Frei, Michael S. Starnes and Edward A. Labry III to the company's board of directors.

The election of Starnes and Labry will not become effective unless and until the merger with M.S. Carriers is completed, which Swift said will occur on or before June 29.
