What's the difference?
Postponement: Choose a more convenient date to serve.
Disqualification: Legally unable to perform jury service.
Excusal: Qualified but temporarily unable to serve.
Rescheduling Jury Service
You may request to reschedule your jury service to a different date no more than two (2) times. Students may request a postponement of jury service to the next school break or to a day when they do not have classes. No postponements are granted within five (5) days of the scheduled reporting date.
Once you have successfully rescheduled your jury service, you will receive a new summons in the mail approximately 2-3 weeks prior to your new service date.
Postpone Jury Service Online
You may request to reschedule your jury service to a more convenient date online. Click the button below to access the system, and then use your Juror ID Number, found in the upper right corner of your summons, and your date of birth to access the system. Select the option on the left to Request to Postpone Jury Service.
Note: If the option to postpone your service is not displayed on the left, you are not eligible to postpone your service at this time. Common reasons include previous postponements and trying to postpone service too close to your service date.
