Reporting for Duty

When to Report
First day jurors report at 8:30 a.m. On subsequent days, jurors will be told what time to report. Please be prompt. One late juror can waste the time of the many persons involved in a trial.

Where to Go
There will be signs in the courthouse directing you where to go to sign in for jury duty.

Identification Badges
Jurors will be issued juror identification badges. Badges should be worn in plain view at all times (including lunch) during jury service.

State law prohibits smoking in all parts of the Courthouse. Smoking is permitted outside the building, however, because of time limitations there will not always be opportunities to go outside.

Downtown Friday Harbor has a number of restaurants within a short walk from the courthouse. If you are selected to serve on a jury, adequate time for lunch will be allowed. During deliberations, jurors are usually fed in the courthouse as a group.

The Court is located near other County buildings and the Friday Harbor Town Hall. Inside the Court House, or within easy walking distance, you can renew vehicle license tabs, pay property taxes, apply for a marriage license or a passport, submit building permit plans or sit in on a County Council meeting.
