The Jury Commission realizes prospective jurors may have been summoned at an inconvenient time. Our office is willing to defer service to a more convenient time in some instances. Jurors may request a one-time deferment after being summoned. Subsequent deferments are not allowed unless it is an extreme emergency that was not anticipated when the original summons was sent. If you cannot be present to serve on the summons date, a letter from your doctor, employer, or your own personal reason must be mailed or faxed two weeks prior to your service date to: The Jury Commission, Madison County Courthouse, Room 6, 155 North Main Street, Edwardsville, IL 62025-1954 or Fax to (618) 296-7026. Please include your JUROR NUMBER. Or you can come to our Jury Commission Meeting which is the third Wednesday of every month at 9:30 a.m., prior to the date of service. Your presence isn’t required at this meeting, letters or faxes are acceptable.
