MADISON — A federal judge in Wisconsin on Wednesday declined a request by Republicans to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Democrats seeking changes in the law to make it easier to vote in the August state primary and November presidential elections.

The Republican National Committee, the state Republican Party and the GOP-controlled Wisconsin Legislature asked for the dismissal of the lawsuit brought by the Democratic National Committee and Wisconsin Democratic Party. But U.S. District Judge William Conley said in his order Wednesday that the case should move ahead quickly so it can be resolved far ahead of the elections.
