Headshot of We Vote VA FOunder and Editor In Chief, Maria Reynoso

As the founder and executive director of We Vote VA, Maria Reynoso is dedicated to empowering people with the knowledge and tools they need to make informed decisions about their local politics and elections.

A lifelong Virginian, Maria graduated from community college and university in Virginia with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and History. Her background in political science and history has equipped her with a deep understanding of the political landscape in Virginia, and her experience working in digital organizing has given her the skills and knowledge needed to effectively lead We Vote VA. 

Maria started We Vote VA because as someone who was passionate about local politics, she saw a need for a resource that could provide clear, unbiased information on local issues. She wanted to help others navigate the confusing and often overwhelming landscape of local politics and elections, and thus, We Vote VA was born. Since launching their Instagram page in 2020, the organization has thrived and quickly gained a loyal following. 

We Vote VA's success is due in part to Maria's great advisory team of close peers and colleagues from all political standings. Their contributions are invaluable in helping the organization achieve its mission of providing clear and reliable information to the community.

Founding this organization has been incredibly rewarding for Maria, and she has loved learning more about her community. She thanks everyone for their support and invites them to join the We Vote VA community and become more informed citizens today.
