Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On June 1, 2022, we held our 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, at which stockholders voted on proposals to (i) elect Scott Stanford to serve as Class II director for a term ending at the 2025 annual meeting of stockholders; (ii) amend the Astra Space, Inc. 2021 omnibus equity incentive plan to increase the Class A common stock authorized for issuance under the plan by 6,000,000 shares; (iii) ratify the Audit Committee’s appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP ("PwC") as our independent registered public accounting firm for our fiscal year ending December 31, 2022; (iv) provide a non-binding advisory vote on the compensation of our named executive officers; and, (v) provided a non-binding advisory vote as to the frequency on which the non-binding advisory vote to approve executive compensation would be presented to the stockholders.

The Company has two classes of common stock and holders of each class of common stock as of April 21, 2022 (the “record date”) were entitled to vote at the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Each issued and outstanding share of Class A common stock as of the record date was entitled to one vote and each issued and outstanding share of Class B common stock as of the record date was entitled to 10 votes on each of the foregoing proposals. There were 153,014,529 shares of the Company's Class A common stock and 55,539,188 shares of the Company's Class B common stock represented either in person or by proxy at the meeting (which represented 92.72% of the total voting power of the Company), thereby constituting a quorum.

The final voting results for each of these proposals are as follows:
