I got a letter telling me I have jury duty. What do I have to do?

Jury duty is an important responsibility and right you have as a citizen. You get to participate directly in the court process. 

Check the notice you received to know when you have to appear. Come to the court at 735 James Brown Blvd. at the date listed on your notice.

Please show up at least 20 minutes before the scheduled time on the notice to make sure you have enough time to park and get through security. The courthouse can be busy on jury days.

If you are unable to make it to court for jury duty, see this page for more information or contact the clerk at: (706) 821-2460.

You can also call the jury information line at (706) 821-2459 for the court's instructions.

The clerk will send you a check for $25 for each day you had jury duty. The clerk will send the check within one week of the end of your jury duty
