Women leave 'I Voted' stickers at Susan B. Anthony grave

- A steady stream of voters have been visiting the gravesite of Susan B. Anthony on this Election Day, with dozens leaving behind their “I Voted” stickers.

Women were lining up outside Anthony's grave in Rochester, New York on Tuesday morning to mark the first election where Americans have the choice to choose a woman for president.

Anthony died in 1906, 14 years before American women gained the right to vote through the 19th Amendment. She was never allowed to cast a ballot herself.

"It's beautiful,” said voter Jenny Warner. “I think everybody, regardless of who you voted for, everybody is here celebrating the fact that you can vote. That's a huge thing. And it is very common. I love that there's so many children here. It's just so great to see people paying respects to someone so important in our history."

The cemetery will stay open late Tuesday night so that more voters can stop by and pay their respects.
