Time Person of the Year will go to who Time’s editors think has been the most politically influential person of the year.

There are eight contenders for 2015: Abu Bakr Al-Baghdad (the leader of ISIS), Black Lives Matter (activists protesting inequality towards African Americans), Caitlyn Jenner (transgender woman, formerly known as Bruce Jenner), Travis Kalanick (CEO of Uber), Angela Merkel (German Chancellor), Vladimir Putin (President of Russia), Hassan Rouhani (President of Iran) and Donald Trump, (Republican presidential candidate and businessman).

Love them or hate them -- it’s all about political influence. What’s your vote?
