What if I am a college student, and I am from another state or county, do I still have to serve?

Yes. To be eligible for jury duty in Douglas County you only need to have residency in Douglas County for twenty days. If you register to vote in this county or have gotten a Douglas County driver's license you are entered into our system of potential jurors.

Being enrolled in college does not automatically excuse you from serving on a jury in Douglas County.  If you are summoned for Jury Duty during your school year, you may fill out your Juror Questionnaire to see what dates are available to defer your service to. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Jury Coordinator at or 785-832-5213.
