Voters across the country are visiting the gravesite of Susan B Anthony, in Rochester, New York.

They've left flowers, notes and stickers reading "I just voted."

Anthony played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement.

She died in 1906, fourteen years before the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified in 1920, giving women the right to vote.

The city has extended hours at Mount Hope Cemetery today, for anyone who wants to pay their respects.
