How am I selected for jury duty?

Answer: 

Your name is pulled by computer from the voter registration list for your county according to guidelines that assure a random selection from a wide cross-section of the community. You then are mailed a qualification and summons form and asked to complete and mail it back to the court. After the court determines that you are qualified to serve, you are summoned for a three month on-call term during which you may be called to serve. After the completion of your term, you are not likely to be selected again from the voter registration list in future years. If you are called again within two years of your service but do not wish to serve, you may be excused on request.
