Full Answer

According to many local county government websites including the New York State Unified Court System webpage, if you have lost the paper containing your jury duty summons you must call your local courthouse customer representative or local Commissioner of Jurors as quickly as possible. You will more than likely need your driver's license handy, before you do this. A staff member should be able to check your juror status and give you your juror number for the day(s) you will serve. You can obtain this contact number from your local county government website. Often, on the local county government websites, there will be a "Frequently Asked Question" section containing the necessary directions to obtain the information you will need for your jury duty service. This section will be best to check because it will contain the specific information for your county.

You never want to ignore losing your jury duty summons. You must always respond to your jury duty summons to avoid fines or jail time.
