Four races in Broward and Palm Beach coun­ties are al­most cer­tainly headed for a re­count.

Pom­pano Beach Mayor

Out of four can­di­dates Rex Hardin and Mike So­bel gar­nered 40.43 per­cent and 40.03 per­cent of the vote, re­spec­tively. The 0.4 per­cent dif­fer­ence is enough for a ma­chine re­count.

Plan­ta­tion Mayor

In this five-per­son may­oral race, Lynn Stoner came out on top with 30.25 per­cent of the vote. Sec­ond place went to Peter Tin­gom with 29.77 per­cent of the vote. The 0.48 per­cent vote dif­fer­ence out of 34,891 votes cast means a ma­chine re­count.

West Park City Com­mis­sion Seat 1

An­thony Dorsett got 50.17 per­cent and Ka­t­rina Touch­stone got 49.83 per­cent of the 4,347 votes cast. Just 15 votes sep­a­rate them. The 0.34 per­cent dif­fer­ence be­tween them means a ma­chine re­count.

State House Dis­trict 89

In a dis­trict that cov­ers most of Boca Ra­ton and Del­ray Beach east of Mil­i­tary Trail, along with bar­rier is­lands and beach through Palm Beach Shores, Repub­li­can Mike Caruso holds a 124-vote lead over Demo­crat Jim Bon­figlio out of 77,862 cast. That 0.16 per­cent lead means a hand re­count in the race.
