Responding / Confirming Receipt of Summons

The Summons for Jury Service is an official order of the court. You are required to respond by completing the summons questionnaire on the Juror eResponse website. You will need your Candidate/Juror ID number indicated at the top of your summons.  Failure to respond to the summons does not excuse you from jury service. Pursuant to Virginia Code § 8.01-356 you could be held in contempt of court and/or ordered to pay a fine if you fail to respond to the summons. You must carefully read and following the instructions contained in the summons.
