How to Respond to A Summons Online

If you have received a summons for jury service in our court you may complete your juror information form and, under certain circumstances, request a postponement or excuse online.  To log in, you will need to enter the following information:

  1. Your unique 9-digit participant number located to the right of your name and address on the summons.
  2. The first three letters of your last name, exactly as shown on the summons.  If your name is misspelled on the summons or has changed, you will have an opportunity to correct it after you log in.
  3. Your date of birth.

You will initially be presented with a screen to verify your name, address and contact information.  Then click "FINISH" and you will be taken to the main body of the juror information form.

Some items on the questionnaire will require you to enter information in a text box.  These boxes may not be left blank.  If appropriate, you should fill in "not applicable" or "n/a".

After you complete the juror information form, you will have an opportunity to request a postponement or to be excused.  You must provide a valid email address in order to make a request online.

Your service can be postponed, one time only, for up to six months.  If you submit a request to be postponed, please provide a time frame within the next six months to which you service can be postponed.  You will be advised of your new summons date by email after the court has processed your request.

If you submit a request to be excused, you must provide full details of the reason for the request.  (Please note that you may not submit a request online to be excused based on prior jury service.  To make a request based on prior jury service, you must send your request in writing accompanied by a certificate of attendance from the court in which you served showing the date(s) you were actually present in court.  A copy of summons is not acceptable proof of service.)  The court will advise you by mail or email if your request is granted.
