Thousands line up to leave 'I voted' stickers at Susan B. Anthony's grave

For many people, an "I voted" sticker is the trendiest tchotchke to have on Election Day. But in Rochester, N.Y., thousands of people waited hours in line to leave the stickers on the gravesite of woman's suffrage leader Susan B. Anthony. 

Throughout the day Tuesday, steady stream of people paid their respects at Anthony's grave in Mount Hope Cemetery. Some decorated the grave with American flags, while others left yellow roses, which was a symbol of the women's suffrage movement.

Out of concern for the integrity of Anthony's gravestone, city officials set up an adjacent board and asked people to place their stickers there, according to WROC-TV.

Officials warned would-be visitors to expect wait times of between 1 and 2 hours. Cemetery hours were extended to 9 p.m. to accommodate the crowds.

Anthony and 14 other women were arrested for attempting to vote in the election of 1872. She was convicted and fined $100, which she never paid. She died in 1906, 14 years before the 19th Amendment extended the right to vote to all women.
