Independent local government election candidate Pauline Mellon has called on people in the Galliagh area to ensure they are registered to vote.
Ms Mellon said that while out canvassing recently she spoke to many people who are still not registered to vote.
“On the doorsteps I have noticed a strong thirst for change. However many people I have spoken to are not registered to vote.
“People seem to have disengaged and detached themselves from the electoral process due to a sense disheartenment and disappointment with current representation and the outworking of the political process.
“If you want change you will have to vote for it and ensure that you are not disenfranchised on May 5th,” she said.
