    In a direct democracy, the leader of the country is voted by popular vote only. In representative democracies, the leader is actually chosen by a select group of people called electors, who are chosen by voters in each state to elect the leader. At least, that’s how the government in the US works.

    Direct democracy is a political system where the citizens participate in the decision making personally, as opposed to having government officials elected to represent them. It’s like people forming groups that will eventually run a small community. These self-elected individuals will then make decisions directly.

    Representative democracy is when government officials are elected by voters. These government officials will be the representatives of the people who voted for them. They usually try to run referendums in order to allow for the voters to voice out their needs.
