I've heard /z/ in "electricity" fairly often, and sometimes, with surprise,
heard it coming out of my own mouth-- I feel when I'm articulating lazily. I
think I *usually* use /z/ in "Visa" (occurring way most frequently in my
vocab., and now probably most people's, wrt a credit card).

As a good northerner, I've never heard or used /z/ in electricity, but do
have /z/ in visa.
