Hillary Clinton on Thursday accused her Republican presidential rivals of fear-mongering over a phantom epidemic of election fraud as a ruse to justify imposing new barriers to voting that would harm the democratic process.

..

In some of the sharpest words the Democratic frontrunner has yet unleashed against the pack of Republican contenders for the White House one of whom she may well face in the general election next year she said most of the GOP field of 17 candidates would put up new obstacles to voting. Thats wrong and its counter to American values.

..

Clinton added: They should stop fear-mongering about a phantom epidemic of election fraud and start explaining why theyre so scared of letting citizens have their say. What part of democracy are they afraid of?

..

Clintons trenchant comments came on the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnsons historic signing into law of the Voting Rights Act. The legislation quickly came to be seen as a pillar of civil rights in the US, sweeping away decades of blatant disenfranchisement of black people in the south and unleashing the electoral might of millions of African Americans.

..

But over the past two years, in the wake of a supreme court ruling that punched a large hole in the act, the US has witnessed a new wave of voting restrictions introduced by Republican-controlled states. According to the Brennan Center, a non-partisan institute that specializes in voting procedures, 21 states have imposed new hurdles to voting since 2010, most of them in the past two years.

..

The new restrictions could have a profound impact on the 2016 elections. Fifteen states have rules in place that would make voting more difficult than it was in 2012.

..

As civil rights leaders and voting rights advocates gathered in Washington on Thursday to mark the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act, the celebrations were tempered by dire warnings of a renewed threat. The cautionary note was struck most forcefully by Clinton.

..

Barack Obama also waded into the furore, attacking state legislators without referencing the Republican party for introducing measures that on the surface may appear neutral but have the effect of discouraging people from voting.

..

He went on: If those tendencies are allowed to continue unanswered, then over time the hard-won battles of 50 years ago erode and our democracy erodes. And that means the decisions made in the corridors of power all across this country begin to reflect the interests of the few instead of the interests of the many.
