Since all jurors are selected randomly by computer, a person may be summoned to a courthouse which is not the closest Federal Courthouse to their home. Residing in one of the following counties makes you eligible to serve in Anderson.

Abbeville Greenville Newberry Spartanburg
Anderson Greenwood Oconee Union
