    Default Who/whom to vote for

    Dear Teachers

    In the following sentence, should I use "who" instead of "whom"?

    Mary would not say "whom" she would vote for.

    Regards

    Anthony the learner

    Default Re: Who/whom to vote for

    'Whom' is strictly correct, but many (esp. BrE) speakers would accept 'who'.
