Summoned for Federal Jury Service?

You must visit the website of the federal district court where you were selected to serve to complete an online Juror Qualification Questionnaire via eJuror and to learn additional details should you be summoned to report to court for jury service.

Each district court summons eligible citizens from counties in the district or, if the district has multiple jury divisions, from the counties in those jury divisions. 

  • Use the Federal Court Finder to find your local federal court’s website or the court’s contact information if you have questions about jury service.
