Reporting for Jury Service
- Verify if your service is required: Jurors must call 410-548-4997 after 5:30 P.M. to confirm service for the following day. You will need your reporting number from the “Juror Badge” portion of your summons to obtain reporting information. Your summons specifies if you are a Trial juror or a Grand juror. The recorded message will advise jurors as to whether or not they are needed for jury duty and provide additional instructions including the daily reporting time. Please make certain that you listen to the entire message carefully.
Trial Jurors must call in each and every evening (Sunday – Thursday) during their service month to confirm service is required the next day.
Grand Jurors call the evening prior to their summons date only. If empaneled as a Grand juror you will be given a specific list of reporting dates and will not be required to call-in after the first day.
