Not Necessarily,
 The tangent shows the direction in which an electric force should act, but keep in mind it is not the only force acting. Another force like gravity can change its course. Moreover, due to inertia charge body with good mass tends to deviate.
 
BUT, you can consider a small charge like an electron to follow the line if no magnetic force is present.
