Services & Information
Jury Duty is one of the most patriotic acts civilians participate in with regard to their governance. It is second only to that of voting.
Each county receives a list of potential jurors from the Secretary of State that consists of those individuals in the county that are registered to vote, hold a Texas driver's license, or hold a Texas identification card. Citizens on the list are randomly selected and mailed a summons to report for jury service.
It has been reported that county residents have been receiving phone calls regarding their failure to appear for jury service and a warrant has been issued for their arrest. This is a scam. Williamson County District and County Courts as per a longstanding policy will never call an individual and ask for money, gift cards, money orders, etc. for payment to clear the warrant for failure to appear for jury. Please do not send money to these individuals when requested. Contact your local law enforcement agency.
