Wouldn't encrypting the hash require that the recipient has d/led and
installed the election committee's public key, and that the user has
some basic knowledge of public key encryption such that they can decrypt
their token (user #3 may have trouble here).

Did you mean that the hash would be 'signed' with the elections
committee private key?
