You may request excusal if you are a King County resident who cannot serve on a jury due to an undue hardship. Undue hardship means it would be unfair for you to serve due to a medical, physical, or sensory condition.
You may reschedule
If the hardship is an appointment you can reschedule, we won't grant excusal. This includes susceptibility to COVID-19. Instead, please log in to our online Juror Portal and move your summons to a later date that works better. Every person is eligible to postpone their jury duty date twice. Only the individual named on the summons should log in to this site. Do not log in to the site if you are not the person named on the summons even if you are their parent, child, or guardian.
Letter from a physician
We need a physician's letter detailing your permanent medical, physical, or sensory condition.
Submit your physician's letter by
King County Superior Courthouse
516 Third Ave, First Floor Jury Assembly Room
Seattle, WA 98104
Upload: Using the Juror Portal
You will receive a confirmation of your excusal from jury duty once we process the letter from your physician.
