Stevie Valles

Executive Director, Chicago Votes

Stevie grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio but has lived all over the place – Michigan, Virginia, Alabama, Washington DC, Dallas, Austin, and now Chicago. Even though he isn’t from the “Windy City”, he often says he got here as soon as he could. A graduate of Oakwood University (HBCU) with a Bachelors in Social Work, Stevie has committed his entire career to making sure all people have a voice and are welcomed as equals.

Prior to joining Chicago Votes, Stevie was the Director of National Voter Registration Day and has worked in the United States Senate, the Texas Legislature and on a slew of campaigns ranging from presidential, gubernatorial, and affordable housing. Stevie is a member of the Circle for Justice Innovations, the board of Change Illinois, the Cook County Community Advisory Council, and the City of Chicago Civic Engagement Advisory Council.
