Jurors are drawn from a combined list of registered voters and holders of Montana driver’s licenses and identification cards. The typical term for jury duty in District Court is July 1 through June 30 of each year.
If you have been selected to serve for the term, should you plan for a vacation or if there are emergencies that arise and you find it impossible to serve, email us. Please provide the reason why you will be unavailable and the dates of unavailability. All requests must be received in writing by either email, regular mail, or in person.

Please be aware that there are various scams involving jury duty. Some of these scams demand the immediate payment of money from citizens or an attempt to obtain personal information that could be used for identity theft. Our office will NEVER contact you by telephone, email, or regular mail demanding you pay a fee for missing jury duty. If an individual misses jury duty without being excused by the Court, they may be ordered to appear before a District Court Judge to explain the absence. At that time, the Judge may impose a fine. If you receive a telephone call or something in writing that you feel is questionable, please feel free to contact us by telephone at 406-582-2168 or by email.
