With another year almost in the books, we decided to ask our readers and listeners to vote for the 2019 Cheyenne ''Person of the Year."

While the list of candidates in our poll by no means includes every person who left their mark on Cheyenne in 2019, we did try to include a number of people frequently mentioned in a recent Facebook post as well as a few people who obviously had an impact on our community in 2019.

There are no doubt many, many people who could be considered for this recognition, but we tried to pare down the list to a reasonable length. That likely means some worthy candidates were excluded, but we did our best.

Who gets your vote? We'll publish our poll results on Monday, Dec. 23, 2019.
