There were three main political structures, they were the assembly, the court, and the council. Both the council and the court held the main source of power. The assembly's meeting was an important event in Greek democracy, any adult male citizen could take part in the assembly and it was mandatory to do it. Later the trials and legislation were moved to the courts. To be able to vote, you had to physically attend the meeting.
In 355 B.C., political trials were made in courts and not the assemblies, the court could accept or reject the decisions made by the assembly. Although it was not a perfect democracy there's not many difference from ancient greek democracy and modern day democracy.
