Thank you for taking the time to go through my posts. I admit that I'm not an expert on some of these concepts, and really I was hoping to get some validation as to whether the methods I described could be improved or at least adapted. I feel that concepts like Delegated Proof of Stake, for example, can solve engineering problems regardless of the original context for which it was invented.

Perhaps I should substantiate my claims a bit more.
Every year in India we hear allegations that entire sets of votes are misplaced or lost. The paper trail remains physically impossible to actually tally, since the number of votes in a state or central election here easily add up to a few hundred million. Even the electronic vote count is subject to debate every election season, and I was hoping some of the ideas like signed batches of votes can help mitigate that.
