COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Voters in the battleground state of Ohio are getting their chance to cast an early ballot for president, U.S. Senate and other races.

First lady Michelle Obama planned to visit Cincinnati to kick off early voting. Republican Mitt Romney's campaign also planned a get-out-the-vote bus tour in southwest Ohio and elsewhere.

About 30 percent of Ohio's total vote -- or roughly 1.7 million ballots -- came in ahead of Election Day in 2008.
