# Can I convert integermod_int to int?

I need to do an and operation between element of vector with IntegerModRing(mynumber), but I get

if(element==(element & 3)): TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for &: 'sage.rings.finite_rings.integer_mod.IntegerMod_int' and 'int'

don't mind element ==element(&3) It's just to see if works.

```
for element in v0:
if(element==(element & 3)):
print "ok"
```

is there a function that let me do this?
