The Electoral Commission of Uganda has announced that it would request that the government of Uganda declare Tuesday, July 10, 2018, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Uganda, "to enable the successful organisation of the Local Council one elections".

Recall that, 2 years ago (2016-05-09, 2016-02-23 and 2016-02-10), the government of Uganda had declared non-working public holidays in Uganda, on account of the election of Local Government Leaders, the presidential poll, and the swearing-in ceremony for President Yoweri Museveni.

One-off, election-related public holidays are relatively common in Uganda (2011-05-09, 2011-03-11, 2011-03-07, 2011-02-21, and 2011-02-15).
