According the said road map released by Tanga Odoi, the NRM electoral commission chairperson, interested people will pick forms from the NRM Electoral Commission headquarters on August 3, followed by joint campaigns at the NRM headquarters on August 5, 2017.
On August 16, there will be an update of the register in Iganga to prepare for the polling day on August 18 at NRM EC offices at the district.
