People Are Flocking To Susan B. Anthony's Grave On Election Day


Men and women are honoring Susan B. Anthony, the famous suffragist who helped women get the right to vote, by standing in line at her grave on Election Day and placing their “I Voted” stickers on her tombstone.

Mount Hope Cemetery, where Anthony is buried next to her sister Mary, will stay open until 9pm on Tuesday (an hour later than usual), giving people more time to pay respect to Anthony and her legacy.

Deborah Hughes, the executive director of the nearby Susan B. Anthony House and Museum, told a local Rochester news station that the amount of visitors is totally unprecedented.

“This is so powerful,” Hughes said. “Someone asked me if there’s ever been a line this long ― there’s never been a line.”
