Are you talking about the electoral college?  The electoral college is a way to balance democracy.  The idea is that there is a system of checks and balances in case the people make bad choices.  It is a form of democracy, because most of the time the people vote for who they want for president and the electoral college votes the same way.  It is not pure democracy because the popular vote alone does not elect a president, and a candidate can win the popular vote but not the election.

A democracy has to have an electoral system.  There can be many different kinds of electoral systems in democracies, but you cannot have a democracy without an electoral system.  Of course, simply having an electoral system does not make a country democratic.  The country must have a free electoral system and must also protect the basic freedoms of its citizens.  Dictatorships do not have to do any of these things -- they can be however the ruler wants them to be.

explain and analysis between dictatorship and democracy??plss

There seems to be two questions here, so to which one do you want a response? A dictatorship is a form of government.  A democracy is a form by which every citizen is allowed to vote on every issue.  Since these are two very different subjects, it is difficult to make any comparative analysis.  In a dictatorship, one person (or group) controls all the decision making processes.  In a democratic form of governemnt since everyone is supposed to respond to every decision making process, it soon becomes cumberson and so when many people do not choose to participate, it rapidly becomes a dictatorship.  Both forms of government exist on our planet, and in my opinion are largely ignored by the majority of the people.
