    Default voabulary and structure check

    I want to write this sentence as part of somebody's resume.

    I think it's nonsense :(

    It's not a sentence.

    Try again.

    From what you wrote, I cannot begin to work out what the person's job involved (I assume that is what you are trying to describe as it is a resumé). As Rover said, try again but if we don't understand the next attempt you might have to tell us exactly what they did in their job and we will see if we can work out what we would write on a resumé.

    This person was responsble for counting the votes and checking the identity cards of the voters.

    Ballot-boxes are in cities and for villages they carry ballot-boxes to their places because it's difficult for them to come to cities. that's why I said mobile ballot-box.

    Right. I get it now.

    If it's a bullet point in a resumé you could say


    • Responsible for mobile ballot-box during parliamentary elections.

    Is it important that the votes were cast in mobile ballot boxes? If the person's job involved counting votes and checking ID cards, then I can't see why it's relevant what type of ballot box was involved.
