Jury Service

Jury Fraud

Scams are on the rise during the COVID-19 crises and jurors are not spared from these scammers. Don’t fall victim to scams targeting jurors. They are out there.  Personnel from the Circuit Court Clerk’s Jury Office, Courts, Police, or Sheriff’s Departments would never call a juror and ask for money relating to jury service. If you receive a call of this nature, immediately hang up with the caller and file a police report by calling the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021 or file a report online with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. Never use a phone number provided to you from the caller to verify their credibility.

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 an 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 the Jury Office at 703-777-0650.
