For all individuals not claiming a disqualification or exemption, please appear on time, and  BRING YOUR SUMMONS with you when you report (with the questionnaire portion completed.)  IT IS IMPORTANT that you call the JURY INFORMATION NUMBER printed on the front of your summons the weekend/day prior to your summons date.  A recorded message will provide information regarding any cancellation of the jury panel.  (OR check our facebook page).
