SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Early voting has brought more than 100,000 people to polls in Utah more than a week before the general election.

State elections officials say the early turnout is setting a record.

The lieutenant governor's office administrator Mark Thomas says about 105,000 people had voted by the end of Friday.

That compares with 75,000 voters who made early choices in the last big election, in November 2006.

The lieutenant governor's office has a list of about 75 early voting locations on its Web site.

Thomas says vote early -- it will be crowded at the polls Nov. 4.
