Surveys for Jury Service in Loudoun County in the Mail

Loudoun Clerk of the Circuit Court Gary M. Clemens announces that 40,000 Loudoun County residents will be receiving jury questionnaires in their mailboxes this month. Each September, the Clerk of the Circuit Court sends out jury questionnaires to determine who is qualified for jury duty in Loudoun County. While the questionnaire process is underway now, those citizens who are deemed qualified to serve as jurors are not subject to serving jury duty until calendar year 2019. “The jury questionnaire is essentially a survey that allows the Jury Office and Jury Commissioners determine who is qualified and eligible to serve jury duty next year,” said Clemens. He adds that the jury questionnaire is not a summons for jury duty.  

Clemens asks that citizens who receive a jury questionnaire take the time to read and complete the questionnaire as this process helps the court and the clerk establish a qualified pool of juror candidates for 2019.  While recipients of the jury questionnaire have two options for completing it, Clemens strongly encourages citizens to use the website address provided in the questionnaire to complete the survey online.  The other way to complete the questionnaire is to simply complete the paper questionnaire received in the mail by hand and return it by first-class mail.  

The online completion of the questionnaire saves the jury office considerable time in processing the questionnaire responses. It also saves citizens time and the cost of postage to return the questionnaire. The website provided is secure and safe to use. 

“The timely participation of those who receive the questionnaires is beneficial to the efficiency of the qualification process and it helps the court system provide the constitutional guarantee of a jury trial to criminal and civil litigants,” said Clemens. 

More information about jury duty and the juror questionnaires is online at www.loudoun.gov/jury. To find out more about the services offered by the Clerk of the Circuit Court, visit www.loudoun.gov/clerk.
