How do I know that eJuror is secure?
The court follows current best practices for database and server security, maintained by highly-skilled Information Technology court staff, and supported by a dedicated national network security group.
Who will see the information I provide to the court?
The Qualification Questionnaire you are completing is used only by court staff to determine your eligibility to serve as a juror sometime in the future.

The last page of the eJuror process is called a confirmation page. Reviewing this page is important for you to view your answers and make edits on those you wish to alter or amend.

If you do not receive this verification, the court will not have received your Qualification Questionnaire.
