Is it a Crime for a Citizen of the United States to Vote?

Happy Birthday, Susan B Anthony, who was arrested for voting a straight Republican ticket in 1872--the presiding judge denied her the opportunity to testify on her own behalf, amongst other miscarriages of justice.  Seven years later on her natal day, Republican President Rutherford B Hayes signed a bill that allowed women attorneys to argue cases before SCOTUS.  Wasn't that nice?
