When do I need to start calling the Jury Line?
After 6:00 p.m. and each evening thereafter, or as otherwise directed, you are required to call the automated jury line at 1-800-656-6638 or 309-467-4626 to determine the jury panels that need to appear.
I realize that jury service is often inconvenient, the right to trial by jury is one of the most fundamental American principles and is a basic right assured to all persons. The full cooperation of every citizen is necessary if our system of justice is to function fairly and efficiently. As Circuit Clerk, I will make every effort to ensure that your time as a juror is a pleasant one.
