To a large extent, the realization of democracy itself is dependent on the degree of development of democratic technology. From the drawing of lots, baker exile, investing beans in Athens city and other democratic way,to modern technology, the emergence of representative democracy,and then to the advent of the contemporary e-democracy technology and deliberative democratic technology,all reflects people's exploration and unremitting pursuit of the democratic technology. The realization of socialist democracy with Chinese characteristics is also inseparable from the support of the democratic technology. The research and practice on democratic technology is the proper meaning of the title of socialist political civilization with Chinese characteristics. This issue is also an important subject on the political life in China.As a new perspective in political science study, the premise of the effective study in the practice of contemporary China democratic technology is how to build the basic theory of democratic technology.

At present, it has established a relatively complete set of democratic technology system in China, which guarantees the normal operation of the socialist democratic system to a certain extent. But it is undeniable that democratic technology still in its early stage of development in China, there are also many flaws and deficiencies. It mainly manifests the lack of supply and reasonable of democratic technology, human action or illegal action of democratic technology leading to the formal running and negative results of democratic technology. It inhibits the realization of socialist democratic values to a large extent, making the democratic ideal of socialism just"looks beautiful", in contrast with the democratic practice. Apart from democratic technology itself, the reason of the plight is subject to the immature for contemporary China's political and ecological environment. Finally, through analysis for the development logic of democracy and the key direction of contemporary Chinese democracy, it obtains the results that electoral democratic technology is the priority areas of contemporary Chinese democracy technology development.

Finally, the paper looks ahead the development trends of democratic technology in contemporary China. It considers that there are some flaws of the representative democracy, which can not overcome itself in China and even in the world, needing further expansion of participatory democracy to compensate for it. However, the representative democracy is still the main democratic institutions in contemporary China. Therefore, the trends of democratic technology development in contemporary China are four points: first, the representative democratic technology has to continues to be improved and more precise; second, the participation democratic technology has to continue to be developed, such as deliberative democratic technology; third, new technologies play an increasingly prominent role in democratic politics, such as e-democracy technologies etc; fourth, it has to promote the institutional building of democratic technology, which ensures that authenticity and validity of democratic technology with the scientific design of the system.
