On the face of the summons next to your name is a juror number. This number will remain important for the duration of your term. Your term is for 14 days, unless your trial runs longer than 14 days. Your 1st reporting date is also on the summons. It is possible for this to change.
After 5 p.m. (the evening before any day you are to report for the first time) call 360-676-6779, extension 56779. If a jury is needed a recorded message will indicate by a range of juror numbers and give instructions to those jurors who are needed to report. If you are not needed on the first day, the message will leave instructions on when to report again.
If you are selected to hear a trial, the presiding judge will convey your daily reporting instructions to you.
