Apester, the visual interactive storytelling platform, partners with TIME for the third consecutive year to poll their readers as a part of the TIME’s Person of the Year project. Every year since 1927, TIME chooses a person or a group with the most influence on the events of the year. Voting begins November 19 and will end on December 6 at midnight ET. This is the second time that TIME polls its readers using the Apester story format allowing a mobile optimized multiple slide gallery experience with custom made interactive buttons.
