Campaigns are about more than yard signs, knocking on doors and mailers. Videos, or commercials, also play a role.
Not every candidate has a campaign film this year. Notably, the candidates in Spokane City Council District 1 haven't released any, nor has Council president candidate, John Ahern.
And not every video is created equally. Some are long and made for internet viewing. Others are 30 seconds, and made for TV. Some talk issues, others go for the heart strings.
Here they are, so you be the judge.
David Condon, incumbent candidate for Spokane mayor:
Shar Lichty, who is challenging Condon, put out this ad.
Ben Stuckart, incumbent council president, has this documentary-like video.
As we said earlier, Stuckart's opponent, John Ahern, has not released a video.
In the City Council races, the candidates for district 2 and 3 have all put out films. First, in district 2, in south Spokane, LaVerne Biel put this together.
Lori Kinnear, also running in district 2, has this video, produced and paid for by the union-backed Spokane for Honest Government.
In northwest Spokane's district 3, Karen Stratton's campaign got some help from the Spokane firefighters union and Democratic state Rep. Marcus Riccelli in this video, and was also produced by Spokane for Honest Government.
Evan Verduin, also running in district 3, has this slick, cello-backed film about his candidacy.
