MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel is telling a federal appeals court that he does not want the state’s voter identification law to take effect until after the April 7 election.

Schimel said Tuesday in a court filing that he does not object to the request by the American Civil Liberties Union to hold off on enforcing the photo ID requirement until April 8.

Schimel had said Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to the law that he didn’t want the photo ID requirement to take effect immediately. Schimel agrees with opponents of the law that it can’t be enacted before the election because people have already begun voting by absentee ballot.
