Jury Duty

Reply To a Summons

Your summons for jury duty is a court order and you must appear. If you have been summoned, you may complete your Juror Affidavit Questionnaire online. 

Responses to the demographic questions on the court’s summons/questionnaire regarding Gender, Ethnicity and Race are not mandatory, but highly encouraged.  Answers to these questions do not impact a person’s ability to serve, and they are not shared with attorneys or parties as part of jury selection. These answers are required solely to avoid discrimination in juror selection and have absolutely no bearing on qualifications for jury service. By answering these questions, you help the court monitor the juror selection process so that discrimination does not occur. In this way the court can fulfill its legal obligation to provide jurors who are randomly selected from a fair cross section of this community.

To be a juror in the state of Arizona, you must be at least 18 years old, must be a U.S. citizen, must reside in the proper jurisdiction, must not have been convicted of a felony, and must not be currently judged by a court to be mentally incompetent or insane. If you need to be excused from jury duty, you must complete your Juror Affidavit Questionnaire, or write a request to the judge explaining your reason(s). However, you must contact the court to find out if your request has been granted.
