Women began placing “I voted” stickers on the grave of women’s suffragist Susan B. Anthony on Tuesday, 146 years after she made history by illegally casting her ballot in a presidential election.

Anthony died in 1906, 14 years before women gained the constitutional right to vote.

Nearly a century and a half after Anthony illegally voted, women are visiting her grave in Rochester, N.Y., to place their voting stickers at her grave.

Women made a similar pilgrimage to Anthony’s gravesite at Rochester’s Mount Hope Cemetery in 2016, when Hillary Clinton was the first female major party presidential candidate.
