Watch the livestream.


As voters finally decide whether to elect the first woman to become the president of the United States this Election Day, hundreds of people are paying respect to Susan B. Anthony. They are honoring the 19th century women’s rights advocate for her work in campaigning for women’s suffrage by covering “I Voted Today” stickers on her grave stone in Rochester, New York.
