Employee Voting at the 2010 Annual Meeting
Around April 19, U.S. payroll Chevron employees who participate in an employee stock plan and have a company-issued email account will be sent an email at their work address with instructions for viewing proxy materials and voting online.
Chevron employees who participate in an employee stock plan but do not receive an email will receive the information via the U.S. Postal Service. Delivery will vary, based on geographic location.
The companys 2009 Annual Report as well as the Notice of the 2010 Annual Meeting and the 2010 Proxy Statement are now available electronically on the companys intranet and can be accessed, viewed and printed at your convenience. Electronic delivery, where available, will save natural resources in addition to saving the company printing and delivery costs.
The proxy materials include general information as well as specifics on matters that will be voted on at Chevrons Annual Meeting of Stockholders in Houston, Texas, on May 26. You will be voting to elect members of the companys Board of Directors, to ratify the appointment of the independent registered public accounting firm, to approve an amendment to Chevrons By-Laws to reduce the percentage of stockholdings required for stockholders to call for special meetings, and to vote on six stockholder proposals.
Employee stockholders will have the ease of voting their proxies online or through a special telephone voting service. You are encouraged to use one of these convenient, cost-effective methods to vote.
Voting Is Confidential
Employee stockholders are encouraged to vote. All voting tabulations and results are handled by Broadridge Financial Solutions, an independent third party. Chevron does not have access to individual votes, and the process is completely confidential. Voting will be available through a secure Internet Web site or by telephone.
Once you have received the information, you may proceed to vote. Voting your shares in an employee stock plan must be completed by May 21 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (3:59 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time).
If you wish to receive a paper copy of the Annual Report or the Proxy Statement, you may submit a request indicating the item(s) you wish to receive along with your name and your intercompany mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chevrons Board of Directors recommends that you vote as follows:
ü FOR: Election of the Director nominees
ü FOR: Ratification of the independent registered public accounting firm
ü FOR: Board proposal to approve an amendment to Chevrons By-Laws to reduce the percentage of stockholdings required for stockholders to call for special meetings

Employee Stockholder Q&A
What happens if I do not receive the proxy email?
Any employee stockholder who does not receive the proxy material and voting email around April 19 will receive the information via the U.S. Postal Service. Delivery will vary, based on geographic location.
What documents will be delivered electronically?
The company will electronically send you a link to the annual report, the notice of the meeting, the proxy statement and the proxy ballot.
How do I vote my proxy electronically?
When you are sent the email message describing how to access the annual report and proxy statement, you will also be given the information youll need to vote your proxy ballot online or by telephone. Please remember that you will need your pre-assigned personal identification number (PIN) to access this system. Your pre-assigned PIN will be the last four digits of your social security number, unless you previously changed it.
What if I would like to receive paper copies of the documents instead of receiving proxy materials electronically?
If you are an employee participating in a company stock plan and you do not want to receive proxy materials electronically in the future, please notify the Corporate Governance Department at email@example.com.
Does electronic delivery apply to company stock that I have as a registered holder or in my broker account?
No, this applies only to shares employees hold in an employee stock plan. If you want to take advantage of a similar method of electronic delivery as a registered holder of company stock or for stock you hold in a brokerage account, please log on to the Proxy Online Sign-up and follow the instructions.
