Update: We've extended the nomination period until Thursday at 5 p.m.
On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Barack Obama as their Person of the Year.
The magazine invited votes on 40 candidates, including Obama, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options included The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle.

Tell us your pick in the comment section below. We'll gather your suggestions and create a poll beginning Friday.
We will then reach out to the person who has the most votes to bring you a profile of that person.
