Macomb County Clerk/Register of Deeds Carmella Sabaugh has implemented a new computer system for jury service. The new questionnaire lets you save the postage cost by replying online if you want.
You may also request to excuse or postpone yourself when necessary on the Web under certain court-approved circumstances. You may still be required to submit documentation verifying the reason for your request.
Clerk staff now process questionnaires more quickly with less staff time by digitally scanning them. Please use a blue or black pen only.
In order to complete the questionnaire online, you must use Internet Explorer as the Web browser. (It will be compatible with other browsers in the future.)
You will get a faster response to your request for postponement or excusal, if you make your request online. However, you may also U.S. Mail a written request with your questionnaire. If replying by U.S. Mail, please tear along perforation and keep top portion of your questionnaire. Bring the top portion with you on your service date for those summoned to the 16th Judicial Circuit Court.
