More information about Final Jeopardy:
The practice of placing one’s “I Voted” sticker on Susan B. Anthony’s headstone became well-known in the 2016 election when thousands of Americans showed up at her gravesite on Election Day to pay gratitude to the American woman’s suffrage icon. Anthony was arrested on November 5, 1872, for illegally voting in that year’s presidential election. The 19th Amendment was passed nearly 50 years later.
