Crowd makes Election Day visit
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — The New York gravestone of Susan B. Anthony was thickly encrusted with “I Voted” stickers on an Election Day on which voters chose whether or not to put America’s first female president in the White House.
A steady stream of people lined up at Rochester’s Mount Hope cemetery starting before dawn to pay respects to the women’s suffrage leader. Women left hundreds of voting stickers as tributes.
The cemetery extended its visiting hours to 9 p.m. Tuesday to accommodate crowds that grew into the thousands by afternoon.
