The 2020 Presidential Election is a tight race between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. CNN’s coverage has consisted of around-the-clock coverage. Throughout their run, they’ve used a “Key Race Alert” graphic with music to capture viewers’ attention and draw them back in to hear even the smallest of developments.

Audiences began mocking the use of the graphic online by creating memes.

Others used the meme to make their own election-based PSAs:

Some are seizing the opportunity to share their own life updates, no matter how big or small.
