There is a ton of election-related data pushed out every day, so much it’s hard to keep track. ProPublica provides the Election DataBot to help bubble up the more interesting data points.

Today ProPublica is launching a new tool, created in partnership with the Google News Lab, that makes it easier for journalists, researchers and citizens to quickly find newsworthy information about the presidential race and congressional campaigns in their states. We’re calling it the Election DataBot because it collects huge amounts of data and reports the most interesting details, in real time — details about campaign finance filings, congressional votes, polls and Google Trends data, among other things.

Probably the best part is that you can quickly filter down to your state and election race. See what your representatives are doing and what’s trending.
