Susan B. Anthony‘s gravesite continues to see heavy traffic on Election Day. A key figure in the American suffragist movement — she was arrested for illegally casting a ballot in the 1872 presidential election — Anthony’s impact on politics is still being felt today. Starting early this morning, people flocked to the cemetery where she was buried, and placed the “I Voted” stickers given to them at polling stations on her tombstone. Even though it’s only early afternoon, little real estate remains on her headstone. Flowers and flags are also stacked on top of one another surrounding the 110-year-old grave site, and there is a long line of people still waiting to pay their respects. Anthony’s resting place will have extended hours today, USA Today reports.
