If completing the questionnaire on a mobile device, you may have experience difficulties.  If you are unable to complete the juror questionnaire online, you can fill one out when you appear for service, if your group is summoned in for jury duty.

CALL-IN INFORMATION:

  • Follow the instructions provided on your summons for call-in procedures.  Upon calling, a recorded message will guide you through five groups of jurors.  Listen carefully for instructions pertaining to your group.  Your group letter is displayed by the bar code at the top of the summons.
