By Jade Bulecza - bio | email

QUITMAN, GA (WALB) –A suspect in a voter fraud case in Brooks County is now the new school board president.

Board member Nancy Dennard was elected in a 4 to 3 vote Tuesday night.

Dennard was one of ten people arrested last month on charges of illegally distributing and turning in absentee ballots for voters.

The GBI and Secretary of state's office began investigating the case after an unusually high number of absentee votes decided several elections last July.
