The District of South Carolina is divided into four large jury areas which may require travel to a courthouse some distance from one's home. 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 Spartanburg.

Abbeville Greenville Newberry Spartanburg
Anderson Greenwood Oconee Union
Cherokee Laurens Pickens  
Edgefield McCormick Saluda  

If you have moved and no longer reside in one of the above counties, please send a letter to Clerk of Court, 901 Richland Street, Columbia, SC 29201 and you will be excused.
