How was I chosen for jury service?
Potential jurors are selected randomly by a computer process overseen by the city's jury commissioners. Names are selected from the voter registration files in such a way as to produce a representative cross section of the community. Men and women over 18 years of age and from all walks of life have an equal opportunity to be called for jury service.
