The Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Alabama saw a record turnout for its election, tribal officials said.

Tribal members re-elected incumbent chairman Eddie Tullis and incumbent health administrator Buford Rolin. Arthur Mothershed was newly elected to the tribal council.

All three victors said economic development is a priority for the tribe. Tullis is trying to negotiate a Class III gaming compact with the state. The tribe is also expanding its gaming operation.
