Early voting results for the 2012 Presidential Elections have been released by AP for some of the key swing states in this year's crunch elections.

Florida, Nevada, Ohio, Colorado, Iowa, and North Carolina all have results listed and are the major battlegrounds which are largely expected to decide the outcome of the election and decide whether President Barack Obama will be re-elected, or whether Republican candidate Mitt Romney will enter the White House.

The voting results are trickling in, however, official voting tallies will not be released until Election Day Nov. 6.

According to the Associated Press approximately 30 million people have already voted across 34 states and the District of Columbia. Early voting has been conducted by mail or in person.

No early votes will be officially counted until Election Day on Tuesday, however, some swing states are releasing information on which party affiliation early voters have held.

Here are the figures that have been released by the Associated Press on Monday:

Votes: 1.6 million
Democrats: 35 percent
Republicans: 37 percent

Votes: 4.3 million
Democrats: 43 percent
Republicans: 40 percent

Votes: 614,000
Democrats: 43 percent
Republicans: 32 percent

Votes: 702,000
Democrats: 44 percent
Republicans: 37 percent

North Carolina
Votes: 2.7 million
Democrats: 48 percent
Republicans: 32 percent

Votes: 1.6 million
Democrats: 29 percent
Republicans: 23 percent

Meanwhile the Rasmussen Reports nationwide poll for Nov. 5 shows Romney with a slender 1 percentage point lead over Obama, with 49 percent compared to 48 percent.

However, the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Map Projections indicate that Obama is certain of taking 237 Electoral College Votes, where as Romney only has 206 guaranteed.

That means eight states worth 95 Electoral College Votes will decide who enters the White House after Tuesday's election results are announced.

The eight key states, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports polls, are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia, Wisconsin.

The latest polls have also shown that Obama is leading among those who have already cast their vote, however, Romney leads among those labeled as likely to vote.
