@Watcher: "Maybe I misunderstand your statement A-C but there is no run off vote. You vote once only. You can rank your choices but that is the only chance you get."

The whole point of rank choice voting is to provide instantaneous runoff elections. If you don't like the idea of runoff elections, then sure, rank choice voting is not for you.

"Instantaneous??"

"Instantaneous??"

That's a hoot.

After all the ballots from every precinct in Maine get sent to Augusta and logged in with full procedure, and then each and every ballot is reprocessed with one drop out, and lots of observers and challenges. And then no majority winner.

Rinse and repeat.

No room for errors or other mischief here.
