I believe the answer is no simply because the electric current breaks theH2Obonds and formsH2andO2gas. Eventually you run out of water due to this process.

Also, in aH2O+NaClsolution,Cl2gas is produced which would eventually affect ion concentrations.

Wikipedia has a pretty detailed description of theelectrolysis of water.
