The only contact most citizens will ever have with the court system is through jury service. The right to a trial by jury of our fellow citizens is one of our most important rights and is guaranteed by the United States and North Carolina Constitutions. By serving, jurors are helping to preserve this freedom.
If you are required to serve on a jury, you may be asked to make decisions that affect others' civil or property rights, or you may be asked to determine someone's right to freedom or even to life itself. Jurors' contributions are invaluable to the court and our democratic tradition.

If you are selected for jury duty, please call 586-7525 after 5:30 pm the
evening prior to your service date to verify if your appearance is required or
if there is a time change.
