Postponement of Jury Service
If you are summoned to serve as Petit Juror, You may postpone your appearance date ONCE, up to six months. Call the Jury Office at (612)348-3158, or submit your request in writing, or you may go to the jury questionnaire and postpone online. If you wish to postpone online you MUST postpone a minimum of 10 days prior to your current start date. All other postpone requests MUST be done prior to your current start date.
If you are summoned to serve as Grand Jury, we are not able to postpone the date. If you must be excused, you must complete the questionnaire, make your request to be excused in writing, and send them both in the postage paid return envelope.
In Hennepin County the Grand Juror usually meets each Thursday at 9:30 a.m. over a four-month period. Occasionally, your business may be completed in a half day; sometimes you may be required to appear two days in a given week.
