Additionally, the different state of matters are separated by vertical lines in the written convention.
You include liquids if they are involved in the reactions in the voltaic cell. However, if one electrode has a chemical in aqueous solution, but water is not part of any of the reactions in the voltaic cell, you need not write water into the cell diagram. However, the chemical in aqueous solution should be marked as such.
