The view from the second floor of the Ray County Courthouse in Richmond, Missouri.

A while back I was invited to speak about election recounts and blogging at a meeting of the Ray County Democratic Club. This evening I made the hour long drive up Highway 13 (and over the Congressman Ike Skelton Bridge across the Missouri River at Lexington) for a regular meeting of the club in the lobby of the Ray County Courthouse in Richmond.

I spoke about a number of election recounts over the past few years and provided a handout with information and URLs of our blog reporting and the Missouri Secretary of State’s web site. After I spoke the club continued with its business meeting – discussing fundraising, upcoming events, and their scholarship program.

These folks are part of the activist core of the Missouri Democratic Party. It’s four months after the 2008 general election and across the state grassroots groups like this are gearing up for the next cycle.

The work never ends.
