Jurors at former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's corruption trial have begun their eleventh day trying to reach a verdict.

There's still no indication Wednesday of whether jurors are simply taking their time to walk through all the evidence or if they're bogged down in arguments.

Since they began deliberations, they've only sent two notes to the judge. The last was sent on their third day of deliberations. That's made it hard to glean how discussions are going.

Jurors have worked every weekday, but taken weekends off.

Blagojevich faces 24 counts, including charges of trying to sell or trade an appointment to President Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat. He has pleaded not guilty.
