Bio: Georgina Cannan has spent her career working on the state and national level to advance voter participation and protect voting rights for campaigns, state parties, and nonprofits.

She served as Senator Mark Warner’s Voter Protection Director in 2014 and then went on to work at the Democratic Party of Virginia where she was, at the time, the only full time, year-round Voter Protection Director in the country. There, she built a statewide voter protection infrastructure with local committees to make sure they were working to protect voting rights year round.

In 2017, she moved to the Democratic National Committee as the Deputy Director and Counsel for Civic Engagement. There, she worked with state parties to build voter protection infrastructure customized to each state’s needs, she set up a permanent, year-round voter hotline to help voters around the country answer their questions, and she supported more campaign voter protection programs than they’d ever had before in the 2018 midterms. Most recently, as Vice President of Spread The Vote, she built a national voter education programming that makes voting accessible to voters in all walks of life and increases voter participation.

Georgina received her undergraduate degree from Wheaton College in Massachusetts in Political Science and International Relations and her law degree from The George Washington University Law School. She is a member of the Virginia Bar.

Georgina is a life long Virginia resident and currently lives in Fairfax County, Virginia, where she enjoys cooking and DIY home renovations when she’s taking breaks from defending democracy.

Advice: Make sure you write down why you’re running for office and why you picked the specific office you’re running for before you get started. As you hit bumps in the road or you need to make major decisions about your campaign, it’s helpful to have that reminder to keep you on track.
