Election investigation underway in Brooks County

By Jade Bulecza - bio | email

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Some Brooks County voters are angry about what they think is a case of election fraud.

The GBI won't give details, but agents confirm they are investigating possible voter fraud.

In the probate court Friday, workers sorted through large stacks of ballots, but the judge wouldn't comment.

Three incumbents who were leading after votes cast in person were counted, but they lost after a suspiciously high number of absentee ballots were counted.

One incumbent was ahead by hundreds of votes until the absentees came in.

"It's a shame it went the way it did," said William Jordan, a Brooks County voter. "There was evidently a massive effort to register the absentee voters."

We're told investigators from the Secretary of State's office were in Quitman Friday, but the office would not confirm that.
