Movie Connection(s):
Follows: The Purge: Anarchy (English)
Dubbed into: The Purge: Election Year (Latin American Spanish)
Audio/Video Mismatch
When Minister Edwidge Owens is beginning to give the sermon at the church towards the end of the film, the first word or two of his speech are unsynchronized (delayed) with the movement of his lips.

Audio/Video Mismatch
During the debate scene, the presidential candidates' dialogue are off-sync with what they're actually saying during long shots.

The Purge: Anarchy, set in 2023, states the annual purge started six years prior, in 2017. The Purge: Election Year is set two years after The Purge: Anarchy, in 2025, but states Senator Roan's family was killed on Purge Night eighteen years prior, which would be 2007.

Revealing Mistakes
When the scene that takes place in the deli after the purge begins happens, the cash register clearly displays a message saying "Good Afternoon" when in fact it is in the very early morning hours.
As of this film, James DeMonaco has written and directed every single film of the series

Was originally intended to be a prequel, telling the story of the very first Purge the idea was scrapped when Frank Grillo accepted James DeMonaco's offer to reprise the character of Sergeant Leo Barnes

The films release exactly 365days (a year) from eachother. As in the film the purge only happens once a year

The Purge: Election Year is the 3rd movie in the Purge Series
Filming Start Date:
16 Sep 2015
