Expert Answer:

When the terminals of the cell are connected externally to an electric circuit, current is drawn from the cell. In this process, current flows from the negative terminal of the cell to the positive terminal. For every electron that reaches the postive terminal (and neutralises the charge imbalance between the two electrodes), a new electron is released from the negative terminal, which maintains the supply of current.
The electrolyte keeps the electrons from going straight from the anode to the cathode within the battery.
