The general election is approaching fast. Ballots will begin to be mailed on Oct. 18, and the last day to vote is Nov. 7.

Spokane County Superior Court, Position 6: Tony Hazel.

Spokane Public Schools, Position No. 5: Mike Wiser.

Spokane Valley City Council, Position 5: Pamela Haley.

Spokane Valley City Council, Position No. 1: We recommended that Rod Higgins and Al Merkel advance to the general election. Merkel finished third in the primary, so our choice is Higgins over Chris Jackson.

Spokane City Council, District 3, Position 2: We recommended Candace Mumm and Brian Burrow, who finished third. So our choice is Mumm over Matthew Howes.

In the Spokane City Council race for the District 1, Position 2 seat, we picked Kathryn Alexander, but she finished third behind Kate Burke and Tim Benn. Our choice in the general election is Burke.
