It's a lot different from the original Greek democracy.
This consisted of three bodies, the Ekklesia, the Boule, and the Dikasteria.
The Ekklesia met about 40 times a year on a hillside outside Athens and consisted of male Athenian citizens older than 18. (Only people, whose parents were citizens, were citizens.) Around the 4th century Athens had a population of about 260,000, of which about 100,000 were citizens (150,000 were slaves and about 10,000 were foreign residents), of which 40,000 were elligible to participate in the legal process, and only about 5,000 men did, as the rest were in the army or the navy or working to support their families.
At the meetings, the Ekklesia made decisions about war and foreign policy, wrote and revised laws and approved or condemned the conduct of public officials.
The Boule consisted of 500 men, 50 from each tribe, who served for a year and were chosen by lottery, not election. They met every day and did most of the hands-on work, but its main job was to to decide, which matters should go before the Ekklesia, so in fact they dictated, how the democracy worked.
The Dikasteria was the courts. Every day, more than 500 jurors were chosen by lot from a pool of male citizens older than 30, and here you could argue any kind of case.
So you see, the original Greek democracy had no election at all.
