AUSTIN (KXAN) — Election Day is less than one month away, and new election finance reports show just how much each candidate for Austin City Council raised—and spent—between July and September.

Austin’s Nov. 8 ballot will include races for mayor and five council seats in addition to a $350 million bond proposition for affordable housing. Districts 1, 3, 5, 8 and 9 are all up for grabs this election cycle. There are nearly 30 candidates vying for those seats.

One of the most crowded races this November will be District 9, which covers large chunks of downtown Austin including the University of Texas at Austin.

The deadline to file campaign finance reports was Oct. 11. Here are more details from each candidate’s finance report.
