ALL JURORS REPORT

In order to ensure your jury service is as smooth and fast as possible, please go online and complete your juror questionnaire before reporting for jury duty.


Effective September 2022

The District Clerk's office converted to a new jury program.

The jury summons you receive will provide a QR code and a website to prequalify and
complete your supplemental questionnaire online.

Please do this prior to your report date by accessing the following:

https://jury.bowiecounty.org

You will need the Juror ID found on your summons along with your DOB to login.

You can also go to the website or call by phone 1-844-340-5510 to do the following:
* Check your status
*Request to be rescheduled
*Claim an exemption or disqualification


You may receive a response by email or text.  So, we ask that you provide an
accurate email address and cell phone number when logging in.

This will allow our office to streamline the prequalification process.
