This web site is designed to assist you with frequently asked questions regarding your jury service.  It is not a substitute for the Judge's instructions but is provided to help you understand Dallas County's procedures.

You may ask how your name was drawn for jury service.  The Legislature is responsible for all laws pertaining to the jury list or jury wheel.  Every 2 - 2 ½ years, the Secretary of State receives the Dallas County voter's registration list and the driver's license list from the Texas Department of Public Safety.  These lists are combined to make up Dallas County's jury wheel.

The current jury wheel contains 1.9 million names, which are randomized.  In the year 2000, 639,870 summons were mailed to prospective jurors.  The reason some people never receive a summons is "their placement on the list".  It is that simple.  

Potential jurors may submit a rescheduling request form online, filling in information from the jury summons they received.

Please have your jury summons in front of you to continue with the Jury Service Postponement Request Form.


Dear Jurors of Dallas County, in the event that Dallas County Government operations are the subject of closings, necessitated by inclement weather, there will be a broadcast announcing such closing on local radio and TV stations. If you receive a juror summons to report on a date that is the subject of a broadcast imposing a closure of Dallas County Government operations, your juror summons will be canceled. You will also receive a notification from Jury services by text and/or email and you do not need to reschedule your jury duty.

Thank you.
