The Superior Court of California, County of Solano’s jury summons is taking on a new look and the Court is expanding online functionality for jurors. Starting February 21, 2019, the Court will no longer mail an 8 . by 14 jury summons with a return envelope.
Instead, the Court will mail a summons postcard. Jurors will now have the opportunity to use the Court website to request postponements, provide information on disqualification, update address information for Solano County residents and provide a cell phone number and/or e-mail address. Jurors may use the application to request a text and/or e-mail reminder of their jury service. Kiosks will be stationed in each jury assembly room to allow jurors to check in upon arrival.
The very heart of our democratic process relies on every citizen to play his/her part to ensure equal access to justice for all. As stated by Presiding Judge John B. Ellis, “one of the most important components of our judicial system is the right to a trial by jury. Jurors provide fair and just results for those that come before the Court.”
“After serving jury duty, many jurors describe their service as interesting and enlightening,” states Sabra Forbes, Jury Operations Manager. “Many jurors find they enjoy being part of something so important.”
