Three electrode system

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello, I have two doubts.
In a three electrode system, do the reference electrode and the auxiliary electrode interact (by direct contact or other way) with the analyte? And why?
The second doubt consists in this point and I think is connected to half of the previous question: during for example a voltammetry experiment does the analyte get charged? Told another way, the reactions happening at the working electrode are balanced by a counter reaction happening at the auxiliary electrode involving the analyte? (this is why I asked if the auxiliary electrode has physical contact with the analyte)

Thanks a lot,

tirrel
