Electricity is moving electrons (or other
charged particles such as ions or atomic
nuclei). Electricity is a form of energy.
Anything that conducts electricity has electrons
available to move all of the way through it. If
you apply a voltage (potential difference in
charge between two points in an electrical field),
electrons will immediately move through the
conducting material where you applied that
voltage. There isn't a "starting point", because
in order for electrons to move, they have to have
a closed circuit to circulate; electrons just
start moving when the voltage is applied, but
there is neither a starting nor an ending point.
