Jury Service

Receive an Official Jury Summons?

Before you visit the Online Jury Service Portal PLEASE read the following instructions:

When you login you will see the following buttons:

QUESTIONNAIRE:

If you intend to serve as a juror and are not exempt or disqualified select the Questionnaire button and complete the questions.  You do not need to complete the paper questionnaire on your official summons, but please bring it to court with you.  If you complete the questionnaire you may not elect exemptions or disqualifications.  Please call the District Clerk’s office for assistance with exemptions/disqualification if you completed the questionnaire by mistake,  (254) 582-4042.

EXEMPTIONS:

Please read your summons for a list of Exemptions or Disqualifications from service.  You may declare your exemption/disqualification on the portal by selecting the Exemption button after you login.

RESCHEDULE:

You may reschedule your jury service if the court has elected to set multiple court dates and the date you have been summoned to serve is not convenient for you.  If reschedule is available, you may select the reschedule button when you login to the portal and set the date you wish to serve.  You will receive a new official summons for the date you chose to serve.

We are excited to offer an online Juror Service portal.  If you have any questions please call the District Clerk at (254) 582-4042.

The District Clerk is responsible for facilitating the jury selection process for all of the Hill County Courts including the 66th District Court, the County Court At Law, the County Court and all of the Justice of the Peace Courts.

Other than voting, jury service is our most important civic duty. Remember that the U.S. and Texas Constitutions both guarantee the right to an impartial trial by jury.  You help make the system work and ensure the integrity of our judicial system.  Thank you!

Your time and service are greatly appreciated!
