Jury Duty

Updated information about jury duty (or cancellation of jury duty) is posted here weekly as updates become available from the judiciary.

Please check this site often if you have been summoned to appear for jury duty processing.  Thank you.

Jurors can update their contact information, request an excusal and confirm service by visiting our juror webpage. This website also provides jurors with information regarding the selection process, payment for service, courthouse security as well as other helpful information.

All adult citizens who are residents of Clay County and possess a Florida driver license or other qualifying identification are subject to summons for jury duty.

  • When reporting for jury duty, you may park in any available public lot, including the parking lot at the south end of the courthouse.  Public parking is also available at the corner of Palmetto Avenue and Houston Street.

  • Bring an acceptable form of identification such as a Florida Driver License, Florida Identification Card or a passport.
  • You may bring reading or writing material as delays may occur during jury assignment and selection.
  • Jury service lasts for one day or, if you are selected for a jury, for the length of the trial.
