  1. In a direct democracy, every citizen can vote on everything -- directly. (Ancient Athens in Greece did this, but their definition of who was a citizen wasn't what ours today is.)

    In an indirect or representative democracy (called a Republic), citizens vote to elect people who will represent them in various legislative bodies.
