    Nearly half of Florida's 12.9 million active registered voters have cast ballots ahead of Tuesday's election as early voting comes to an end.

    Nearly 48 percent of all registered voters in Florida have either voted early or voted by mail, according to new numbers reported Sunday to the state Division of Elections.

    Democrats have a slight edge of nearly 33,000 votes over Republicans with just one day of early voting left. Of 6.15 million votes cast, 2.4 million votes have come from registered Republicans, compared to more than 2.43 million votes from Democrats. More than 1.16 million voters registered with no party affiliation have also voted.

    Floridians can still vote Sunday in 16 of Florida's 67 counties, including some of the state's largest.
