Jury Duty - Home

Welcome Columbia County Jurors!

Trial by jury (also known as petit or regular jury duty) is a cornerstone of our democracy. The Oregon and United States Constitutions protect our right to jury trial. Jury duty is one of the most important rights and responsibilities of American citizenship. All persons chosen for jury duty are selected at random from combined lists of registered voters and DMV records.


  1. Complete the online juror response form (or download hardcopy to submit)
  2. Complete Orientation by watching
  3. Monitor your Schedule to see if you are called to report in-person. The call-in calendar can be monitored by phone, the Jury Recording Line at 503.397.2327 ext.24003.
  4. If called to report in-person, jurors are to report to the Columbia County Courthouse at 230 Strand Street, Saint Helens, OR 97051


  1. Report as instructed in the Schedule.
  2. Review our FAQs regarding parking, attire, and  what to avoid bringing into the courthouse.
  3. Make arrangements to serve the duration of the trial (normally service date to Friday of the same week).

It is the jurors' responsibility to submit ALL unavailability dates for their term to the courts in writing, with proper documentation. Unavailability dates submitted later than 24-hours prior to a scheduled call-in date, or once a juror has been called to report for a trial, cannot be approved by the Jury Coordinator.
