LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Pulaski County Election Commission and a group of four voters are asking Arkansas’ highest court to prevent the state from enforcing a voter ID law in an upcoming election after it was struck down by a judge.

The commission on Tuesday asked the Arkansas Supreme Court to deny the state’s request to stay Judge Tim Fox’s ruling, which voided the new law requiring voters to show photo identification before casting a ballot. The panel said the integrity of the upcoming May 20 primary election won’t be affected if the state follows previous law. Early voting for the primary begins Monday.

Four voters suing the state over the law in a separate case asked to intervene in the case before the Supreme Court, which had initially focused on absentee ballots.
