At all levels!

At the very first level, when three people discuss their local 
ordinances and budget, they will be talking about matters of vital 
concern to themselves.  Some of them will have strong views on the 
issues.  They will favor the person best able to protect their vital 
interests or seek to advance, themselves, to ensure their voice is heard.

That is part of the magic of the method.  Instead of having no power 
beyond writing futile letters to the editor of the local paper, the 
people can actually influence their own government.

That is an enormous change from the present state of affairs.
