How- A poll watcher challenged Anthony’s qualification
as a voter. The inspectors of election took the steps required by state law when
a challenge occurred: they asked Anthony under oath if she was a citizen, if she lived in the district, and if she had accepted bribes for her vote. Following her correct answers to these questions, the inspectors placed her ballots in the boxes. On election day the officials at the polls decided that Anthony was an eligible voter.
