Clerk Of Courts

New Jury System for Common Pleas Court

Beginning the week of July 15th, 2024, Licking County residents selected for jury duty for the Common Pleas court will receive their summons in a new postcard format.  The postcard will prompt potential jurors to go online (either via the website provided or by scanning the QR code with a mobile device) to complete their jury questionnaire.  The new jury portal will allow prospective jurors to request to be excused or rescheduled (if necessary) and provide real time information regarding the status of their service. Any questions can be directed to the Clerk’s office by calling (740) 670-5796.
