Drum roll, please ...

Last week, we closed the iReport Political Ticket Contest, which invited people to send in submissions explaining why CNN should send them to Tampa or Charlotte for the 2012 political conventions. In total, we received more than 200 entries from people all over the U.S.


We have now received the judges' votes, and are ready to name the six lucky winners -- very soon. CNN's Brooke Baldwin will introduce them on TV this Friday during her show (barring any unforeseen breaking news) and the CNN Press Room blog will also publish the winners that day.


We can't wait to share the exciting news. Stay tuned for the big reveal!


UPDATE: Big congrats to iReporters Alex Anderson, Matt Sky, and Elizabeth Lauten, who will report from the Republican National Convention, and Omekongo Dibinga, Melissa Fazli, and Willie Harris, who will join CNN at the Democratic National Convention. We can't wait to see your stories!

Congratulations guys. I want you to know I envy each one of you but I cannot complain.


Melissa and Omekongo, I have spoken to you guys many times and you guys will represent the team well. I am sure the other 4 are wonderful.


I will be in Charlotte for the Convention as well so I hope we can get together and do a joint iReport. Sadly I must do it on my dollar:) Which means I cannot go to the Republican convention which I wanted to attend as well.


Team iReport, create a special project for an iReporter who is already going to the Democratic convention that can do a contrasting report with the Republican convention. Come on:) It would make a good story.

@KCRep...Just so you know it was a real dilemma!  My husband has to watch the kids and work.  So drum roll, sister Jaime Mennechey who's in the video.  Yeah!!!  We weren't able to see each other this summer because she had to take care of my mom who had surgery.

I am so proud of each of our six iReport winners. Show the Nation real people have something substantive to add to our national political discourse not often reflected by the established media. Bravo!!!
