Can somebody clarify the role of the salt bridge in an electrochemical cell? Thank you!

The salt bridge serves two related functions. The primary function is to complete the circuit so that charge can flow from one half-cell to the other. The second is to balance the mass by allowing the anion to move to the half-cell where additional cations are being produced
