Do I go back into open court?

After the jury votes, the presiding juror will fill out a verdict form.  The presiding juror will then contact the judge or the clerk to let them know that a verdict has been reached.  Then the clerk will have the jury return to the courtroom where the verdict will be given to the judge, who will announce the jury’s verdict in open court.  The parties may request that the judge poll the jurors.  The judge will then dismiss the jurors.
