Via The Hill:

The White House is holding an online contest that will allow people to vote on which turkey will be pardoned by President Obama on Wednesday.

This year, voters can choose between Caramel and Popcorn, two birds from the farm of Minnesota resident John Burkel. ...

Voters can see pictures of the birds, listen to recordings of their gobbles, and then vote on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter through a website set up by the White House.

"We'll count up the hashtags to make sure there's no fowl play," [White House deputy director of online engagement Erin] Lindsay quipped.
