When you go vote Tuesday, you'll be handed an "I voted" sticker. There's a story behind the image on that sticker – and it has to do with Albany.
The image is that of General Rosalie Jones. She was a suffragist who led a 150-mile march from New York City to Albany in 1912.
Jones won. New York voted to allow women to vote three years before the 19th amendment was ratified, granting women across the nation the right to vote.
