Finding a Voting System that Best Reflects Public Opinion: Instant Run-Off Voting

I'm sure there are some downfalls, but I like the idea of finding different ways to vote and I don't like the fact that my vote is not for who I want, but against who I don't want.  I know this style of voting [instant run-off voting], and others, have been put to use in different cities across the world.  Don't know what the citizens of these places think though, or the likely long-term implications for democracy and decision-making.  I'm just trying to find a way to design a voting system that best reflects the diversity of opinion out there.  I'm sure nothing will be perfect, but this seems like one possibility.  Thoughts and suggestions?
