ANCHORAGE, Alaska  — Election workers in Alaska are scheduled to begin tallying more than 30,000 absentee and early-cast ballots in the state's still-undecided Senate race.

Tuesday's count comes a week after the election and marks the first wave of absentee ballots to be calculated. Those from overseas and military addresses aren't due until Nov. 17.

Election officials plan to begin going through tens of thousands of write-in ballots on Wednesday; on Friday, they'll begin addressing thousands of questioned ballots.

Write-ins held the lead over Republican nominee Joe Miller. But it's not clear how many of those were cast for Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who ran a write-in campaign after losing the GOP primary to Miller.
