its a type of rock. It is sometimes used for roofing.

We take a whole pile of things from it
'slate blue' 'slate grey' colours

Primarily however because it easily splits into thin layers (hence the roofing)
it was also used as a writing surface when paper was expensive. 

I can imagine several ways it came to be used for the election thing but is down so I cant check
