Basic juror information


Jurors are chosen randomly and scheduled at the time of trial. If you live in Arlington, Lake Stevens or Marysville, you can be summoned to serve at the Marysville Municipal Court.

Please read your juror summons for information about your jury services. If you are unable to appear for jury service you must return the questionnaire to the court with your request for excusal. You will receive a response within 5 court business days prior to your jury service date if your request has been accepted or denied. If you do not hear from the court regarding your excusal, you are expected to show for jury duty.

According to RCW 2.36.170, it is a crime for any person summoned for jury duty to intentionally fail to appear as directed.
