Multiple Facebook posts are showing the grave of suffragist Susan B. Anthony covered in “I Voted” stickers.   For those of us who live in Massachusetts and won’t be travelling to Seneca Falls, I have compiled a list of local suffragists.   If you are not up for searching through a cemetery to find their grave, you can leave your sentiment on their Find a Grave memorial page.
