It's been seventeen years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn...or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.

Barnes, the security man, is shot in the chest/shoulder with what is shown to be an M24 sniper rifle, which is chambered in .308. He is shown not only being able to stand up afterward, but also to run several blocks and then be stunned into unconsciousness by a group of Purgers. This simply isn't possible.
A wound from such a rifle so close to the victim (less than 25 yards) would be instantly incapacitating, if not outright fatal. Even assuming that the shooter used full metal jacket rounds rather than more lethal hunting wounds, the wound would still require immediate medical attention and it would, again, be incapacitating, if not outright fatal.

We will now purge. We will torture you and violate your flesh. Remove your skin and share in your blood. This is the American way.

I'm a big fan of thriller & horror movies where the threat are real people rather than ghosts. Hostel, Saw, Wolf Creek are some of my favourite sequels. The Purge, with its intriguing concept, was also one of them... until I watched Election Year.
Nothing wrong with the cast, movie style or effects. It's just that the stereotypes have become so annoying in this third movie! It would be okay if the director were able to make it more subtle, but since the movie is dumb proof, the persistent displays of "LOOK HOW WHITE PEOPLE ARE CORRUPT AND BAAAAD! LOOK HOW GOOOOOOD THESE POOR IMMIGRANTS AND DARK-SKINEED PEOPLE AAAAARE! LOOK HOW EVERYONE WHO COMMITS MURDER IS CRAZY - EXCEPT THE ONLY SANE, GOOD GUYS WHO KILL THEM." can get pretty annoying.
What was supposed to be a nice date with the person I dragged to the theatre after months waiting for the premiere... became a stressful session of torture to the audience's intelligence.
