Juror Information

Contact Information:

eJuror

The national eJuror Program gives potential jurors the flexibility of responding online to their jury qualification questionnaire. Jurors choosing to complete these forms electronically don’t have to mail them. Through the eJuror Program, potential jurors may:

  • update personal information,
  • check when they need to report for jury service,
  • submit a request for an excuse or deferral, and
  • select an alternate time to serve.
Go to eJuror

Please keep the top portion of your jury summons.  Additional reporting information is located on the back of your summons.  Please follow these instructions or any other enclosed instructions which may require you to call in prior to your service date or give a time and date which you are to appear.  You will be required to bring the top portion with you when you report for jury duty.

What to Wear to Court

Please report for jury service wearing business or business casual clothing.  The following types of clothing are not suitable for court proceedings:  shorts, tube tops, halter tops, clothing that contains any obscene, suggestive or inflammatory print or images, and clothes that are overly dirty or ragged.

Absences / Emergencies

In case of absence or emergency, contact the jury manager.

Travel, Mileage, and Other Expenses

Jurors are reimbursed for travel to and from residence to the courthouse at a rate of .45 per mile as approved by the supreme court. 

Compensation

Pursuant to state law, you will be paid $30 a day for each day of jury service up to seven days; $50 a day for eight or more days of service.  You may waive the right to compensation, which will help reduce the state's cost of operating the court system.
