Jury Service

Jury Questionnaire Information

  • Every September, the Clerk of the Circuit Court sends out approximately 45,000 juror questionnaires to ensure that we have an adequate number of potential jurors to serve on the numerous jury trials during the year.   The jury questionnaires that are being mailed via USPS are to obtain potential jurors for the 2020 calendar year.
  • The link to complete your jury questionnaire online is no longer available.  At this time, you may return your jury questionnaire via USPS.
  • Once you have finished completing your jury questionnaire online, you will receive a confirmation.  Please print and keep that confirmation page for your records.  You may need to refer to your juror ID number if you are summoned for jury duty.
  • If you have any questions regarding your jury questionnaire, you may contact the Jury Office by calling 703-777-0650. 

Your privilege and duty

  • The United States Constitution and the Virginia Constitution guarantee all people, regardless of race, religion, sex, national origin, or economic status, the right to trial by impartial jury. 
  • Justice ultimately depends to a large measure upon the quality of jurors who serve in our courts. 
  • Jurors are essential to the Administration of Justice. 
  • Jury trials cannot be held unless people such as you are willing to perform their civic duty.

Juror selection 

  • Each year, prospective jurors are selected randomly from the master jury list of Loudoun County, which is created by merging name lists provided by the Division of Motor Vehicles and the Loudoun County Voter Registration Department. 
  • Randomly selected prospective jurors receive a jury summons in the mail approximately four weeks prior to their jury service date.
  • If you receive a summons, read carefully the front and back of the summons, even if you think you are not eligible to serve as a juror or would like to be postponed or excused. 
  • If -- after reading all of the information and instructions on the summons -- you still have questions, call us at 703-777-0650.
