Juror Information

In various parts of the United States, citizens are being targeted by phone calls and threatened with prosecution for failing to comply with jury service in federal or state courts.  They are also being targeted by emails that ask recipients to provide personal identifiers and then email those back to the originator.  While eJuror is a valid national judiciary program, Courts and the eJuror system will never request that personal identification information be sent directly in an email response.  Requests by courts to complete a juror qualification questionnaire would be initiated by formal written correspondence and provided instructions for the juror participant to be authenticated over a secure connection.  If you feel that you have received an improper phone call or email, please call your local clerk’s office for assistance.
