Voters in Wisconsin have already cast more than 1 million absentee ballots, more than a week out from Election Day.

The state has seen 1.021 million ballots cast already, 34% of the total voter turnout in the state during the 2016 presidential election.

Tallies indicate that some areas are voting mail-in in record numbers, with some places seeing more than 50% and 60% of the last presidential race's tally. Milwaukee and Madison are reportedly largely responsible for the high voter tally.

More than 80,000 Wisconsin residents had cast their ballots in person just a day after early voting started on Tuesday.
