When your juror number (found on your summons) is listed in the notification box above or listed on the juror phone line (540) 224-8502, please report to the courthouse at the designated time at 2 East Calhoun Street in the City of Salem. We are located one block over from Main St., behind the Public Library and beside the Salem Police Department.

Once you have passed through the security checkpoint, you will be directed to a courtroom where all jurors will be assembled for juror orientation. During this time, you will watch a video describing your duties as a juror and what to expect. Should you have any questions prior to your arrival, please review the jury handbook.
