gives a still better chance of just decision
than any other method of trial.”

The jury is the very foundation of the American judicial system. The Constitution of the United States guarantees each citizen a right to trial by jury, and as a potential juror, you have an opportunity to play an essential role.
For many people, jury service is the most direct, hands-on involvement in government they will ever experience. It is also rewarding to know that by serving on a jury, you are serving the community in which you live. For more information on jury service, please check the Jury Frequently Asked Questions (see links under “About Jury Service”).
If you have received a jury summons in the mail, you are obligated to report for jury service. The dates and times for reporting to jury duty are updated regularly. Check the new on-line jury application, eJuror, for updated instructions and any updated information after 5:00 pm on the business day before your scheduled date. You may also call the jury information line.
To get an update using eJuror, you will need to know the court jurisdiction and your participant number from your summons. For an update using the Juror information line, please have your summons available.
Monday to Saturday – 4 a.m. to midnight
Sunday – noon to midnight
