The Wilkinson County Jury Commission meets at least every two years to revise the jury box. If you are eligible for jury service, your name is placed in the county's master jury pool stored on a computer program. Names of potential jurors are randomly selected by the computer-based jury selection program for specific selection dates. Once selected, you will receive from the Clerk's Office a jury summons commanding your appearance for service. The summons provides the following information: the court in which you will serve, the date and time of jury selection, and where you are to report for service.
