MADISON, Wis. (AP) - More than half a million voters have cast early absentee ballots in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission reported Tuesday that more than 518,600 people have cast ballots with a week to go before Election Day.

Of those, about 30 percent have come from the Democratic counties of Milwaukee and Dane. In the 2012 election, about 26 percent of all ballots cast came from those counties.

About 16 percent of early votes have come from the conservative stronghold counties of Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee. Those suburban Milwaukee counties are imperative for Donald Trump and Republican Sen. Ron Johnson if they hope to carry the state.

In 2012, about 12 percent of all ballots cast came from those counties.
