Using 2.93 fb(-1) of e(+)e(-) collision data collected with the BESIII detector at a center-of-mass energy of 3.773 GeV, we measure the absolute branching fractions of the decays D-0 -> K(-)e(+)nu(e) and D+ -> (K) over bar (0)e(+)nu(e) to be (3.567 +/- 0.031(stat) +/- 0.025(syst))% and (8.68 +/- 0.14(stat) +/- 0.16(syst))%, respectively. Starting with the process e(+)e(- ) -> D (D) over bar, a new reconstruction method is employed to select events that contain candidates for both D -> (K) over bare(+)nu(e) and (D) over bar -> Ke(-)(nu) over bar (e) decays. The branching fractions reported in this work are consistent within uncertainties with previous BESIII measurements that selected events containing D -> (K) over bare(+)nu(e) and hadronic (D) over bar decays. Combining our results with the lifetimes of the D degrees and D+ mesons and the previous BESIII measurements leads to a ratio of the two decay partial widths of (Gamma) over bar (D0 -> K-e+)(nu e)/(Gamma) over bar (D+ -> (K) over bar 0e+)(nu e) = 1.039 +/- 0.021. This ratio supports isospin symmetry in the D-0 -> K(-)e(+)nu(e) and D+ -> (K) over bar (0)e(+)nu(e) decays within 1.9 sigma.
