Thank you for calling the Jury Commissioner’s office. Please read the following message very carefully. Although we attempt to spread reporting obligations among all jurors, You May Be Called To Serve On Any Day Of The Month regardless of your juror number. Therefore, you must check every day after 5pm and listen carefully to the message or check the website. You will only have one reminder call for the first possible time that you may have to come in for service, after that it is your responsibility to keep checking to see if your juror number is called for the remainder of the month.
