When you have reached a verdict, the foreperson will record your verdict on an official form. The bailiff will tell the judge that you are ready, and you will return to the jury box. The judge will ask if you have reached a verdict, and the foreperson will answer, handing the written verdict to the clerk, who will read it aloud. Sometimes one of the parties will ask that the jury be polled. This means that the clerk will ask each juror if this is his or her own verdict. The jury's service will then be complete.
