Juror Appreciation Week was created by legislation passed in 2015 during the 84th Legislature and was first celebrated in 2016.
The week is dedicated to honoring those who give of their time to participate as jurors in our judicial system.
Jurors are selected randomly from a database provided by the Secretary of State’s Office and downloaded into the county’s jury program.
The names are from a list of registered voters and citizens with a Texas driver’s license who live in Williamson County .
An average of 800 jury duty summons are sent by the District Clerk’s Office each Monday, unless a holiday falls within the week.
The ratio of those who appear at jury impaneling is between 35 and 40 percent, which is a very good turnout according to District Clerk Lisa David.
