The campaign is seeking 5 million signatures.
ODM Executive Director Magerer Langat said that the coalition is looking to complete the signature collection process by mid October and push forward to the next stage of the process.
" We are over the 3 million mark in signatures and we have been aided heavily by Jubilee strongholds despite them saying not ", Langat said Thursday.
