Ever wish you could talk to a journalist directly during a huge breaking news story? Now you can! The New York Times recently released an Election Bot for Slack that offers live updates from the 2016 Elections.

The best part is you can send your questions directly into the newsroom by typing /asknytelection. Nervous about who’s pulling ahead in the polls? Now you can get clarifications directly from an expert on the subject.

You can install the Slack integration from the NY Times Election Bot website. Perfect timing for our fall election frenzy!
