Your only problem should be the ban on sale and service of alcoholic drinks on election day.

if you buy the alcohol one day earlier and put them into your mini bar, that problem will be sold as well

Desigirl, What you ask is like my asking if there will be demonstrations in New York or Paris or Berlin which will affect the sites I will visit when I visit those cities.

Why should there be demonstrations? on those days? and what relation could political or human rights demonstrations have with historic or cultural sites?

Please follow my long continueing thread for any warnings and opportunities regarding travelers to Turkey.
