(CNN)In four key states -- Florida, North Carolina, Nevada and Iowa -- Republicans are beginning to narrow the Democratic advantage in pre-Election Day voting.

In the last week, voters under 30 have slightly increased their share of Florida's early voting electorate, from 8% to 10%.

Hispanic voters' share of the pre-Election Day vote has increased from 14% four years ago to 16% now, and Black voters' share has ticked slightly up from 12% then to 13% now.

At 49% of the pre-election vote, Democrats have a 17-point lead over Republicans, who stand at 32%.

By race, Iowa's current pre-Election Day electorate is similar to this point in 2016, with White voters comprising the vast majority of early voters at 94%.

Black voters and Asian voters have also seen one-percentage-point increases in their shares of the early vote.

As more ballots have been returned in the vote-by-mail state, the 42% of ballots cast by Democrats is now only seven points higher than Republicans' 35%.
