Hi, my name is Maria Reynoso and I'm the Founder and Executive Director of We Vote VA!
 
I’ve lived in Virginia since I was two years old and consider myself a life-long Virginian. I graduated from community college and university in Virginia, receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and History in 2019. 
 
I started We Vote VA because when I first wanted to learn about local issues, it was pretty confusing and I wanted to help other people who felt the same way I did but still wanted to become a more informed citizen. So I came up with the idea to make a resource page with clear information to make it easy for anyone to learn more about local politics, elections, and so much more - which inspired the creation of We Vote VA! Since launching our Instagram page in 2020, it’s thrived and quickly gained a loyal following.
 
Additionally, I have a great advisory team of close peers and colleagues from all political standings to make sure that every post is accurate and unbiased.
 
Founding this organization has been incredibly rewarding and I have loved learning more about our community. Thank you all so much for your support and we look forward to continuing this work!
