MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Opponents of Wisconsin’s voter photo identification law have again asked the U.S. Supreme Court to block the mandate from taking effect.

The American Civil Liberties Union and allied groups have filed a federal lawsuit challenging the requirement. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last month the law could go into effect while it pondered the case. The court decided the case on Monday, finding the law constitutional.

The ACLU asked the U.S. Supreme Court last week to block the ruling that the law could be implemented, contending state officials don’t have time to get the law in place ahead of the Nov. 4 elections and confusion will result at the polls.

The group filed another request with the high court on Wednesday to block Monday’s full ruling.
