The Democratic Party of Georgia is appealing a Fulton County judge's ruling last week that upheld the law, which requires voters to present government-issued photo identification to cast a ballot.
Democrats contend that the law disenfranchises voters and asked the Georgia Supreme Court on Wednesday for an immediate hearing.
Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, a Republican, said more than 580,000 voters have already cast their ballots. She said "Democrats would rather create chaos in our election process" than prevent voter fraud.
