- Pursuant to 28 USC §1861, all litigants “have the right to grand and petit jurors selected at random from a fair cross section of the community.” The court uses a two-step process to select jurors. During step 1, a master jury wheel is created by selecting names at random from the lists of the Department of Motor Vehicles’ licensed drivers and the Office of Elections’ registered voters. Names are randomly drawn from the master jury wheel to receive juror qualification questionnaires. Answers to these questions determine if potential jurors are legally qualified to serve. The names of qualified prospective jurors are put in a second wheel. During step 2, when prospective jurors are needed for a specific trial or grand jury, summonses are sent to persons randomly selected from the qualified wheel.

Otherwise, if you are deemed qualified to serve and you have a hardship, you will have the opportunity to address your concerns if you are summoned sometime in the future.
