In the election of 1872 Susan B. Anthony registered to vote in Rochester, NY. But like she planned she was arrested for "knowingly, wrongfully, and unlawfully vot[ing] for a representative to the congress of the United States,". Then she was convicted by the State of New York, and fined $100. But she insisted she wouldn't pay not one penny of it. This is an important even in voting history because its another tactic they used to try to get their voting.
