“Every election is determined by the people who show up.”

Susan B. Anthony was arrested for casting an illegal vote in the 1872 presidential election. It was illegal because women did not have the right to vote at that time. Here is some of what she said after her arrest:
Friends and fellow citizens: I stand before you tonight under indictment for the alleged crime of having voted at the last presidential election, without having a lawful right to vote. It shall be my work this evening to prove to you that in thus voting, I not only committed no crime, but, instead, simply exercised my citizen’s rights, guaranteed to me and all United States citizens by the National Constitution, beyond the power of any state to deny. –historyplace.com1873
In August, 1920 an amendment to the US Constitution was ratified giving women the right to vote.
