Welcome to the
Macon County Jury Website
Due to the many concerns of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) Jury week of June 15, 2020 has been CANCELLED. We will reschedule your jury service and mail a new summons with your new reporting date at that time.
If you have any questions, please contact Chelsey Morgan, our Jury Manager at (217) 425-2554.
Trial by jury is a fundamental principle of our system of justice. Jury service is therefore both an opportunity and an obligation of every American citizen. The following information will give prospective jurors some background information about the process and what to expect when reporting for jury duty. All juror selections are drawn electronically from a list of county residents who hold a drivers license, voters registration card, state identification card and/or a disabled persons identification card. You must be at least 18 years old to serve.
Macon County consists of three commissioners and the Jury Manager. Potential jurors are chosen in a random selection determined by the computer. The Jury Manager is responsible for preparation of all jury lists, petit and grand juries.
If you have questions pertaining to your jury service, click on the blue icon toolbar at the top of any of our web pages and select FAQ. You may also contact the Jury Management during regular office hours, 8:00 a.m - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Macon County Courthouse is closed all legal holidays.
