Prospective Juror Selection
Citizens receiving a jury summons from the Columbia County jury coordinator for the Columbia County Superior Court Clerk's office have been randomly selected from a pool of prospective jurors.
Prospective jurors must immediately complete and return the juror questionnaire and juror qualification form to the court clerk at:
341 E. Main St.
Dayton, WA 99328
All information received will be treated confidentially. It is important to provide complete information so that the court can either qualify you for jury service or excuse you from service.
Important Notice to Jurors
Most jury trials last 2-3 days, and jurors are able to return home in the evenings. Jurors are selected at random from voter registrations, driver's licenses, and Washington state identification cards for residents of Columbia County. These lists are combined and duplicate names are eliminated. However, different spellings or name variations may result in some duplications.
Payment for Services Rendered
Jurors are paid $10 per day of service plus mileage at the current rate set by the State of Washington
. Checks are generally mailed soon after the jury term is concluded.
