So [censored] electrons flow from the anode to the cathode, essentially leaves a more positive charge on the left side (anode) compared to the cathode. The salt bridge neutralizes that charge by allowing electrons to migrate back to the left via a sort of concentration gradient where solutes will always move from high to low concentration without the input of any energy.

With the flow of electrons from the anode to the cathode, there is a charge buildup in each flask. To neutralize this excessive positive and negative charge, the salt cations and anions from the salt bridge neutralize the charge.
