What if I received a summons, but I recently served jury duty?
Complete and return your juror qualification form. If you have served jury duty within the last 3 years, you have the option to request to be excused for recent service. Recent service means you reported and received payment/donated payment within the last 3 years. If you served in Harford County, please note on your form the dates and/or year served. Please indicate if your service was under another name, for example: initials versus first name or maiden name versus married name. If you served in another county/state, you must provide your own verification. Question 19/Code H on your juror qualification form addresses this issue.Maryland Law states that an individual may be summoned for jury service after 1 year if the individual serves on a trial jury for fewer than 5 days in a 3-year period.
