Voters paid homage by placing "I voted" stickers all over her tombstone in Rochester, New York. 

Susan B. Anthony was arrested when she tried to vote in 1872. She was a pioneering icon in the women's suffrage movement. Her subsequent trial became national, making headlines and ultimately leading the way for the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which allowed for women to vote.

She was also an abolitionist, being a part of the American Anti-Slavery Society.

The grave holds importance in 2016's election due to Hillary Clinton's potential win. 

Her legacy is still felt today. 

A video look at her grave on election day.
