SYDNEY (Reuters) - Early voting in Australia's national election shows a 3 percent swing against the ruling conservative coalition with just over 10 percent of the anticipated votes counted, according to Australian Electoral Commission data. Early counting in key seats on Saturday evening, including four electorates in the island state of Tasmania, have swung towards the opposition Labor Party. Labor requires a uniform swing across the country of about 4 percent to win office. (Reporting by Jonathan Barrett; Editing by Shro Navaratnam)

The leader of Australia's conservative Liberal Party-led Coalition dissolved both houses of parliament in May in a bid to oust intransigent independents in the upper house Senate who had blocked his agenda, including company tax cuts.
