    Default election

    hi there,
    People should not vote at an election knowing that he is not entitled to do so.

    How about 'in the election'? Why 'at' is used here?

    Default Re: election

    The sentence is a bit of a mess. It also uses the plural 'people' and the singular pronoun 'he'.
