I’ve received a summons letter for jury duty. How do I request an excusal?
To be eligible for jury service in Puyallup or Milton Courts, you must have an address within Puyallup or Milton (depending on the court which has summoned you), must be 18 years of age or older, be a U.S. citizen, have the ability to understand and speak English, and have no convictions for a felony. If any of these criteria are not met, notify the jury clerk by email or letter of the situation.



To be excused from jury service, you must demonstrate that serving jury duty would be a hardship. Statute requires this be done in writing (email or letter) providing the reason / s you are unable to serve. The jury clerk will notify you whether or not you have been excused. Employment is generally not considered a reason to be excused from jury duty. For more information, review Jury Duty page.
