MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans say they're asking the U.S. Supreme Court to block extended absentee voting in Tuesday's primary.

Wisconsin is moving ahead with in-person voting despite concerns about the public health risks of the coronavirus crisis.

A federal judge rejected lawsuits seeking to postpone the election but extended absentee voting by six days.

The GOP says that raises concerns about election security.

Democratic Gov. Tony Evers called a special session for Saturday and asked Republicans to shift the election to all-mail with absentee voting into late May.

Republicans said they wouldn't do it.
