Well, as of Wednesday, Nov. 27, the “Wrecking Ball” singer is leading the magazine’sonline poll, with 28 percent of users voting her into that top spot. She’s beating outNarendra Modi (who has 13 percent of the votes), Edward Snowden (also with 13 percent of the votes) and a slew of politicians, world powers, and even Angelina Jolie! But, Time editors ultimately choose the Person of the Year, and it appears there’s been some vote rigging to get Miley girl into that user-chosen top spot.
A pair of programmers claim they’ve found a way to cast multiple votes for Miley in an effort to make a mockery of the poll. A spokesperson for Time told Mashable they are “aware of the efforts to affect the results of the Person of the Year poll, and have measures in place so that only legitimate votes are being incorporated in the final tally [Dec. 6]…We’re delighted that so many people are having fun with this informal poll and contributing to the conversation [about who should win].”
Miley seemed quite amused with her ranking, retweeting two fan accounts urging Smilers to cast their votes and spread the word.
The results of the Time poll will be revealed Dec. 6, and Time will announce their editor-chosen Person of the Year on Dec. 11.
