Jury Duty

Term of Jury Service

If you are qualified to serve as trial juror, you will be summoned approximately ten (10) days before your appearance date. Do not report until summoned. You are on call for a six-month period or until you have been summoned and reported to court to serve as a juror. An average trial lasts from two to five days. Superior Court jurors are selected from a compiled list of names from Graham County voter registration and Motor Vehicle Division.

Reporting Instructions

  • Call 928-428-3100, after 4 p.m. the evening before your report date to see whether you should appear or if your presence is not required due to a postponement or cancellation.
  • Upon your arrival to the Courthouse, please report to the Clerk of the Court's Office or Bailiff to sign in.

Please do not bring any children under the age of eighteen (18) to court.

Responsibilities

If you report after jury service has been cancelled, you will not be paid. It is your responsibility to call the evening before your reporting day. Failure to report to Court for jury duty as instructed may result in your being brought before the Judge on contempt of court charges.

Excused Days

If you will be unavailable for a certain block of time during your term of service, please indicate the days by sending us a letter to the address below or noting it on your juror questionnaire. If you receive a summons and have a conflict with the appearance date, please notify our office at  928-428-3100 immediately.

Jury Questionnaire

If you have been selected as a member of the Graham County Superior Court jury pool you will receive a juror questionnaire by mail. This questionnaire is not a jury summons. Please read the questionnaire carefully before filling it out. These are all important questions which will be used to help qualify you for active jury duty. Complete and return the questionnaire as soon as possible. You can also scan your completed questionnaire and email it to the Clerk of Superior Court. You may, or may not be called for jury duty in the future.

You can also complete the questionnaire online.
