People's choice.

“Malala leads world figures in TIME Person of the Year poll,” Time would like you to know. But among all contenders in the people’s choice portion of the publication’s annual Person of the Year contest, the Noble Peace Prize-winning teenage inspiration Malala Yousafzai is second to Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Out of a field of 59, Malala is pulling in 5.3 percent of the vote, while Sanders has nearly double that with 10.4 percent. This with a list of competitors that includes a good chunk of 2016 presidential candidates, POTUS, Stephen Colbert and Adele.

We can add “people who vote in Time’s Person of the Year contest” to the demographic groups who favor Sanders, a space largely occupied by millennials. And the occasional banker.

You have until Dec. 4 to get your vote in.
