    I am considering a 3-4 week trip into Burma around October. Without a set date for the proposed election, if it occurs when I'm there, how much disruption might it cause?

    All the parties have 90 days to report their member list and some parties are still registering. So you shouldn't worry about October. May be later.

    According to the latest news the election date is confirmed as Nov 7th. So you should have no problem.
