The nation can now vote on which turkey will receive a pardon from President Donald Trump at this year's Thanksgiving Turkey Pardoning Ceremony.

The choice this year is between Corn or Cob.

Polls on the White House Twitter account will be open for 24 hours for voters to choose their favorite bird.

The birds arrived at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, November 22 in anticipation of Tuesday's big ceremony with the president.

Only one bird will make the cut and appear with the president at the ceremony held in the White House Rose Garden.

Following the pardoning, both birds will retire to an Iowa farm.

There, the pair will live out their lives free from the fears of becoming a Thanksgiving meal.
