Hundreds of voters excited about the possibility of electing the first woman president are visiting Susan B. Anthony’s grave this Election Day. A winding line of mostly women waited in Rochester, New York, to pay homage to the suffragette. Many posted messages of thanks to “Sue” on social media and left their “I Voted” stickers on her tombstone.
Anthony helped lead the movement to give women the right to vote almost a century ago, and she died 14 years before the ratification of the 19th Amendment.
Mt. Hope Cemetery welcomed the visitors and said it would stay open late on Tuesday.
