The ABC election theme for the 2018 midterms (and beyond) takes advantage of a full orchestra, electronics, and massive percussion section to convey a renewed sense of importance and urgency. Trumpet fanfares, snare drums, and soaring string melodies more in tune with an olympic event, are replaced with a more serious drive and balance the line between urgency and optimism. This theme was also used for the 2020 and 2022 elections.
