In what has become a time-honored tradition, women flocked to Susan B. Anthony’s grave in Rochester, New York on Election Day place “I Voted” stickers on the activist’s headstone.

Anthony (1820-1906) was arrested for illegally voting in 1872 and women would have to wait almost another 50 years before they were allowed to legally vote in America –after the 19th Amendment was ratified in 1919.

Anthony once said, “There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.” And that’s why women visit her grave after voting to show their respect.

Even though it was a rainy day, the stickers piled up on Anthony’s headstone throughout the day.
