Nearly 4.5 million Floridians have already voted in the battleground state, the state Division of Elections reported Wednesday.

More than 32 percent of all registered voters in Florida have either voted early or voted by mail.

Republicans are maintaining a slight edge over Democrats — 1.8 million to 1.78 million — with a week to go before Election Day.

A little over 778,000 voters registered with another party or no party affiliation have also voted.

The tight battle in Florida has compelled Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump to make repeated swings through the Sunshine State.

Clinton made stops Tuesday in Dade City, Sanford and Fort Lauderdale. Trump is scheduled to visit Wednesday.
