    As far as I know, the only jurisdiction in the United States actually using IRV is San Francisco. Utah republicans used to use it in their caucuses, but I think they stopped last year. Other municipalities have adopted it PENDING having the right voting machines or for special elections only. I haven’t heard of IRV being adopted in any jurisdiction in NH.
