Other nominations

Anthony would be arrested and fined for attempting to vote on Election Day.)

She is not listed in "Election results" below, as she received a negligible percentage of the popular vote and no electoral votes. Victoria Claflin Woodhull (1838–1927) was an American feminist reformer, stock broker, sex symbol, and advocate of free love. ... Susan Brownell Anthony, aged 28 Susan Brownell Anthony Susan Brownell Anthony, (February 15, 1820 – March 13, 1906) was an American civil rights leader who, along with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, led the effort to grant women the right to vote in the United States. ...
