Since magnitude of electrostatic force on both electron and proton is same but mass of electron is less then mass of proton. So acceleration(force/mass) of electron will be greater than that of proton. So to cover a same distance in uniform elctric field E elctron will take lesser time than proton.
Hope it clears if still you have doubt you can ask me.If you like answer then please approve it.
