Scott County goes live with Show-Me Jury – eJuror system

Potential jurors for the November 5, 2018 thru March 1, 2019 jury term will receive a different kind of notice than in decades past.  As of October 3, 2018 the Scott County Circuit Court has officially went ‘live’ on the State of Missouri’s Show-Me Jury – eJuror system.  On October 4, 2018, we will begin sending out notifications to our first set of potential jurors with instructions to complete their qualification questionnaire online.  Jurors will have ten days, as they have in the past, to complete the new online process.  

It is our hope that jurors find this system to be much quicker than filling out the paper form as it allows instant submission to the court.  In addition, because the process is online, it can be completed at the jurors convenience whether that is sitting at their home computer or on their handheld while waiting in line at their local checkout.  Understandably there will be a percentage of jurors for whom the electronic process will be inconvenient or even impossible and we have a solution for that ready to go.  Jurors unable to complete the online process can simply call the circuit clerk’s office for accommodations. 

But that’s not all.  Jurors will now have the option to choose how they wish to be notified when they have been randomly selected for a jury trial.  This, in our opinion, is epic!  Jurors no longer have to worry about checking their mail daily or if they missed a notice.  While completing the online process, jurors can provide a cell phone number or email address if they wish electronic notification of when to appear for service. 

In addition to user convenience, Show-Me Jury will allow great cost savings to the citizens of Scott County.
