At the election of President and Vice President of the United States, and members of Congress, in November,
1872, SUSAN B. ANTHONY, and several other women, offered their votes to the inspectors of election,
claiming the right to vote, as among the privileges and immunities secured to them as citizens by the
fourteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The inspectors, JONES, HALL, and MARSH,
by a majority, decided in favor of receiving the offered votes, against the dissent of HALL, and they were
received and deposited in the ballot box.
