For something so important to democratically-elected governments, that is a shame. Fortunately, it is possible to create visual representations of voting methods, revealing where methods agree, and where they fall into voting paradoxes. Ka-Ping Yee has created multicolored graphs covering Plurality, Approval, Borda, Condorcet, and IRV. While the flaws in Plurality are readily apparent, what is even more fascinating is the failure of IRV in certain elections.
