People will still be allowed to visit the grave of Susan B. Anthony, who fought to give women the right to vote.

This year, the entrance and exit will be separated to keep visitors apart and social distancing rules will apply.

Visitors can still leave “I Voted” stickers, but there will be a transparent cover over the headstone to prevent any damage.
