After the hand recount on Thursday, Hallandale Beach Commissioner Anabelle Lima Taub maintained her lead over challenger Cynthia Cabrera. It took dozens of workers about an hour to sort through more than 14,000 ballots cast in the Seat 3 race. Cabrera picked up just one vote.

Despite being a political newcomer, Cynthia Cabrera had an army of lobbyists and elected officials observing the recount. Lobbyist Evan Ross appeared to coordinate the volunteer forces which included Hallandale Beach Commissioner Michele Lazarow, disgraced former Broward County Commissioner Scott Cowan and State Representative Joe Geller. Cabrera told the Broward canvassing board that Geller was her legal representative.

Lima Taub was represented by attorney Barbara Stern.
