Yes! There should be electrons in both equations. Oxidation occurs when the charge increases, thus we have lost electrons (losing electrons=positive). Reduction occurs when the charge decreases, thus we have gained electrons (gaining electrons=negative). In an oxidation half reaction we see the electrons as a product. In a reduction half reaction we see the electrons as a reactant.
