Jury Duty Frequently Asked Questions

Which court have I been summoned to?

You are summoned as a Boulder Municipal Court juror if you have received a white, letter-sized Juror's Summons . If you have questions, contact the Jury Commissioner at 303-441-3419.

If you have received a red, white and blue jury summons with tear-off sides, contact the Boulder County Jury Commissioner at 303-441-4732.

How do I find out if I need to report for jury duty?

After 5 p.m. on the day before you have been summoned to report for duty, call the jury line at 303-441-3883 or visit this page for status information. Court staff will not be able to tell you if you need to report before the jury line is updated.

Do I qualify to be excused from jury duty?

Jurors may be excused from service only if they do not meet the minimum qualifications for jury service listed on the summons. See "What are the qualifications for jurors?" below for details.

What are the qualifications for jurors?

If all of the following statements listed below apply to you, you are qualified to serve as a Boulder Municipal Court juror: 

  • You are 18 years of age or older. 
  • You are a resident of the City of Boulder.
  • You are a citizen of the United States.
  • You have not appeared at a courthouse for juror service for five days or more in the past 12 months. 
  • You do not have sole responsibility for the daily care of a permanently disabled person living in the same household, where your juror service would cause substantial risk of injury to the health of the disabled person.
  • You do not have a physical or mental disability that would affect your ability to serve as a juror.

If any of these statements do not apply to you, you may qualify for exemption. Complete an online form to request disqualification or postponement of jury service. Please note, there are no occupational exemptions from jury duty.

What if I qualify to serve as a juror but I have an important scheduling conflict on the day I have been summoned to?

You may complete an online form to request disqualification or postponement of jury service. You will need to include the reason for your request, dates when you will be available for jury duty within the next six months, and a daytime phone number in the event that the Jury Commissioner needs to contact you.

Does being a sole caretaker of a young child constitute a valid excuse for exemption from jury duty?

No, you may qualify for postponement from jury service, but will not be exempted from jury duty.

How does my name get into the jury pool?

The Jury Commissioner of Boulder Municipal Court requests a randomized list of all of Boulder's zip codes from the State Court Administrator's Office. The State Court Administrator compiles its list from voter registration and driver's license information.

Why am I summoned for jury duty so often and other people have never been summoned?

Some individuals do seem to receive juror summonses on a more regular basis. Different courts operate independently of each other and citizens may be called to serve as jurors in each. Residents of the City of Boulder are subject to be called for jury service in the U.S. District Court and the courts of the State's 20th Judicial District, as well as to Boulder Municipal Court. Citizens are not subject to service in each court more than once each year.
