When writing about the European elections on the 26 May, what is the correct preposition in this sentence "The results of / in / at the election will be confirmed on Thursday"

I've been told I should use "in", others are using "at", but the only one that "feels" right to me is "of" and now I'm confused.

    Definitely not "at". I'd use "of". In other sentences "in" could work, but it doesn't really here with "will be confirmed" – Jim May 21 at 4:51
  • @Jim Agreed "of" is the only word that makes sense here. – Peter Jennings May 21 at 23:45
