Visiting hours extended at Susan B. Anthony’s gravesite

It has become a tradition on Election Day for voters to leave their “I Voted” stickers on the grave of women’s suffrage activist Susan B. Anthony in Rochester, N.Y.

Mount Hope Cemetery announced Tuesday it would extend its visiting hours “to accommodate those wishing to celebrate their vote at Susan B. Anthony’s gravesite.” The cemetery normally closes at 7 p.m., but it will remain open until 9 p.m., when polls close in New York.

Visitors who leave behind their “I Voted” stickers receive a sticker bearing Anthony’s image that reads, “I VOTED TODAY Because of Women like HER.”
