Article 2. Conduct of the Trial - California Code of Civil Procedure Section 618

618.  When the jury, or three-fourths of them, have agreed upon a
verdict, they must be conducted into court and the verdict rendered
by their foreperson. The verdict must be in writing, signed by the
foreperson, and must be read to the jury by the clerk, and the
inquiry made whether it is their verdict. Either party may require
the jury to be polled, which is done by the court or clerk, asking
each juror if it is the juror's verdict. If upon inquiry or polling,
more than one-fourth of the jurors disagree thereto, the jury must be
sent out again, but if no disagreement is expressed, the verdict is
complete and the jury discharged from the case.
