4. Election integrity is first point, but still the "advertisement" for IRV
is often wrong.

I've seen these claims repeated but when you look at IRV in real life, it
often doesn't work as advertised.

And if there is a mistake in tallying, who'd know?

Exit polls are useless and voters can't observe the tally.

Ballots are hauled to a central local to be "tallied" (eventually).

IRV isn't additive, you can't just add up the votes like you do with regular ballots.

So what could possibly go wrong?
