The Nebraska Secretary of State's office says county election offices across the state are seeing an increase in early voting over years' past.

The office says that in Nebraska's three largest counties -- Lancaster, Sarpy and Douglas -- more people also have been voting early in-person.

Sarpy County Election Commissioner Wayne Bena says more than 17,000 voters have requested early ballots, while nearly 20,000 have sought early ballots in Lancaster County.

In Douglas County, 3,676 people have voted in person, and more than 54,700 have asked for early ballots, with more than 20,000 already returned.

All three counties say this election's early ballot requests have already exceeded those for the 2008 general election.
