I've received a jury summons, now what?
You must complete the paperwork and return to the Clerk of the District Court before the due date listed in your Jury Summons letter.
How was I chosen?
Jurors are chosen at random from current lists of persons age 18 and older, living in one of the 15th Judicial District counties, who are either registered voters or who have driver’s licenses. Some people are chosen several times during their lifetime; others are never chosen. So long as you are either a registered voter or have a driver’s license, you have the same chance of being chosen as anyone else who meets those criteria.
What are the requirements that I must meet to qualify for jury service?
You must be at least 18 years of age, a United States Citizen and a resident of the county you received the summons from. You are excluded from jury service if you have been convicted, pleaded guilty, or pleaded nolo contendere to a felony within the preceding 10 years. You are also excluded if you are under a present adjudication of incompetency by the court. If you have received a jury summons but do not qualify for jury service, please contact your local Clerk of the District Court
