Hi Everyone!
I have an interesting question and I do believe this is the best resource I have for asking this about this type of problem.
I've been a SysAdmin for close to 15 years now and alot has transpired throughout these last few years due to COVID. Alot of situations have been brought to light from a political standpoint in a world where I really did not consider myself involved in (and still not too much now).

It does seem that there's alot of Skepticism on resultsets that don't favor one's position, even going as far as to weaponizing Skepticism as a premise for rejecting results.

These thoughts have lead me down the path of confronting an idea of this possible outcome verification problem that can arise depending on the subject matter and as most of you may be aware with our own US elections (But can apply to anything really). I really want to stay strongly on topic as this is specifically an Algorithm subject for me.

My question I believe is in the neighborhood of the idea of SSL, but I was wondering is there a specific Algorithm or tweak of one that can be used to verify if such a idea is possible.
My example is as follows.

We have over 330,000,000 people that currently live in the united states (maybe a lot more, I originally thought we were around 430,000,000 but should not matter as this needs to scale).
We can treat each person like a node.

If at the start of a public survey, vote, or poll can a "Public key" be published to the public a week before a Poll is rendered.
Each individual at the time of placing their vote would get assigned a HashValue and a position in line. That HashValue is a computed value that is at the time of inception of the Poll/vote/inquiry is being rolled based on the individuals unique ID (if needed) and the value selected they have chosen from the last known hashvalue from the previous vote place by the person inline before them. Once Polling/voting is closed, the ending key is also published to the public.

Now for example if you have a trusted family member in another state where one placed their value near the start of the polling and the other trusted family member placed their own value near the end (It does not have to be this way, they can place it closer), is there a such an algorithm that can be leveraged where both these members can get the publicly documented keys (both start key and the key calculated in the end), enter it into an offline system that can then run the algorithm and determine if any of the data at all or INBETWEEN The two values being placed in the chain have been altered?

I think as I am typing this out I feel like I'm describing a crypto blockchain perhaps?
Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated! (I apologize if I am burning anyones time asking this question and hope not to trigger anyone on the subject as I specifically would like to maintain this question in the realm of Algorithms)

Thank you!
