This all depends on what time of the year it is; if your electric is your primary source of heating, and the temperature is expected to drop below freezing within the next 24 hours, they can't turn it off (that's the way it is here; I don't know about anywhere else). But when spring rolls around...

Hi chevee. If you don't pay your electric bill they will shut off your electricity. I don't know which electric company that you have, but I have Consolidated Edison because I live in New York. They give you a certain amount of time and a certain amount of warnings. If you don't pay and you get enough turn off notices then they will turn off your electricity and if they do they will not turn it back on until the full bill is paid and that usually means about 3 months worth of bills and a turn on fee. I know where I live they don't kid around because I know plenty of people who have their electricity turned off.
