Forsyth County Jury Service

Find information about jury service in this county.

Length of Service

Jury service in this county operates on the one-day / one-trial system. A new group of jurors are summoned each day of the week and, if selected to serve on a jury, a juror will serve for that day or for the length of a trial. However, if a person is not selected for a trial, their jury service will be complete after that one day. If selected to serve on a trial that is completed before the end of the day, those jurors will return to the jury assembly area and may then be selected for service on another case. If not selected again, those jurors will be allowed to go home at the end of the day, having completed their jury service. Jurors selected for a trial that takes several days will need to be present each day during the trial.

Hours of Service

Jurors are expected to be available from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for the length of the trial they have been selected for.

When and Where to Report

Jurors are directed to follow the instructions on the back of the jury summons as to the time and place to report for jury service.
