Please have your 9 digit participant number ready as you will need this to receive your personal reporting instructions for the following week. Please call 307-433-2195 (Cheyenne only) or 800-894-5264 after 4:00pm every Friday during the duration of your jury service. The numbers are extremely busy, so please keep trying.
